Notes

I love this book and this is the first of many patterns I want to knit from it.

14 Nov 2010 - Finished the second thumb-less mitten. LOVE this project!

09 Nov 2010 - ALMOST finished with the second mitten; just need to decrease for the fingertips and then knit both mitten thumbs.

02 Nov 2010 - finished the first mitten (sans thumb) and cast on for the second mitten on 04 Nov 2010

29 Oct 2010 - ripped back to the plain rounds before the palm / back of the hand chart (Chart B) and increased needle size to 2.5mm (rather than the 2.25 the book calls for). In order for the pattern to work, I also needed to increase the stitch count from 60 to 62 before beginning the thumb gusset increases. The final stitch count is supposed to be 74 and there are 6 paired increases (12 total stitches) and 60+12=72, not 74.

Needle & stitch arrangement before beginning thumb gusset increases:

Back of hand:
Needle 1 - 18 stitches
Needle 2 - 17 stitches

Palm:
Needle 3 - 13 stitches
Needle 4 - 14 stitches
