I knit up these fingerless mitts in a couple of binge-watchings of the Danish political drama, 'Borgen'.
The kits come with single point needles to the mittens are knit flat and then seamed. I thought I did a pretty good job on the seam. I'm thinking of providing dpns so the thumb can be knit in the round rather than flat and then seamed.
I found one. It wasn't a huge mistake but enough of one to bug me. I had split a stitch which left about half of the stitch as an unsightly loop on the face of the fabric.
Fixed! I was fortunate that the pattern was not a complex one, lace or cables, for example. Now there's nothing to interrupt the flow of the pattern. The process looks a lot scarier than it is. The worst that can happen is the repair looks crappy and you have to frog all those rows anyway - and that sometimes happens with my knitting. This time, though, it worked just fine.spit-splicing to join a new skein. I mark the start of the new skein with a stitch marker on the selvage. The scarf is going to be about 64" long.
