New Year's Eve Knitting
I'm close to completing mitten #2. However, notice in the picture, the two mitten tips? They don't quite match, do they? When reading the pattern, I read to knit until 14 stitches remained. I interpreted this as 14 stitches per needle, although that seemed like too many stitches per needle. I actually closed it at 11 stitches per needle, but it didn't close very nicely. Later I realized I was supposed to close it at 14 stitches total. Oops! In my defense, I looked at other patterns, and they instruct until 7 stitches remain per needle. So it is confusing, I say! After closing mitten #2, I redid mitten #1 to close the same way.
Oh yeah. Happy new year! Happy 2008!
