10/2/12 - Started this yesterday. It’s my gift for my sister. I’m really liking the pattern so far, but I wish it were in the round. I might try that if I make these again. I’ll add photos later.

10/14/12 - Went back to Josh’s sweater for a while. Finished knitting these today, just need to seam up! :)

10/30/12 - Finally sewing these up. In trying them on: I’d definitely want to try these in the round if I make them again, I’d also like to try and find a way to do a bit of a thumb. I hate that the thumb is completely out of the mitt. :/ Otherwise, I quite like them.

10/30/12 - Part 2 - Okay, I may not be done with these after all. In seaming up the second one it appears the left glove has one more repeat than the right. I’ll have to check the pattern and see my markings on it. That would just suck… :( Part 3- Having just counted, they should be the same size, so I’m hoping it just has to do with seaming. At the moment I’m discouraged though and will resume seaming tomorrow. :/ Pardon the crappy phone photos right now.

10/31/12 - I’m still not convinced that they are the same length… The left one looks longer than the right… But they’re sewn and done and they look the same on. So I’m not going to worry. I’m going to assume my tension was slightly different from one to the other…
