You better think

This was supposed to be last week’s FO Friday post, but I’m a dingbat.

I did manage to finish one mitten, which I’m pretty proud of considering all the pattern-wrangling it took to get to this point.

And I hardly dare mention the ends.

But then it came to the second mitten. I worked away at the thumb, getting more and more excited as the end approached, until I reached the penultimate round… and realised I’d forgotten to do the first round in the back loop only. Argh.

So I frogged it right back and started again in the back loops. No problem. Until I realised I’d added in a few extra rounds on the first mitten that I forgot to add to the second, so I had to frog back again. Argh!

Then I got halfway up the thumb and only then noticed that I’d sewn the top of the glove in a way that made the thumb hole right in the centre of the palm. So I unpicked some of those flipping ends I spent hours sewing in, which I made such a mess of that I had to frog the final 2 rounds of the mitten. ARGH!!!

Right now it’s sitting in the naughty corner to think about what it’s done. But I thought I would share as a reminder (mainly to my future self) to actually think about what I’m doing, instead of rushing on and making silly mistakes. So many silly mistakes.

Keep your fingers crossed that next time I get it right and get these mittens finished before summer comes around!
