I had been finishing up my Cotton Reel Mittens which I realized why I don't knit mittens - they are like socks. You have to make two of them. I went into finishing frenzy - stupidly during a really exciting playoff game between the Broncos and the Ravens.
I bound off the thumb, wove in the ends and put on the mitten. It looked great, right!?
So then I got out the first mitten and put it on and realized something was wrong - one of these things is not like the other...see?
Too many stitches on the left hand mitten...grrr. It went into timeout overnight and the next morning I got to work.
Painful but necessary. After carefully paying attention to picking up the right number of stitches, I finished the second mitten. Two of these things are the SAME!
