 Ok everyone lookie closely. What's wrong with this picture? 

(It's not the thumbhole - After completion i realized i made the hole too big, so i fudged it smaller with a tapestry needle. these are for me - if they were a gift i would have redone it)

Hint: If you were an alien perhaps these would fit just right.

It was clear after I made the second mitt and tried it on, that something was very, very wrong. 

I made 2 right hand mitts! Had a bit of a moan, chastised myself because I was aware the left thumbhole placement directions were different, and had written notes on it and all. It was on the next page, the way it printed, and I just zoned out long enough to sail right past it. Sure I could have worn them that way but the chevron pattern would not be centered on the back of my hand.

There's a time for brainless knitting, but this wasn't one of them! 

Here's how the mitts are supposed to look. I had to frog back the 2nd right hand mitt to the thumbhole and redo it. See how the thumbholes are much more appropriate for the average human person hand phalanges thingies.

"that looks much better, lass" says my pocket jamie. yeah thanks a lot for that. where were ya when i needed ya?

Still working on some Outlander-inspired goodies, but had to take a break and do something a bit easier on the noggin. Designing aint for sissies, I have found!


  1. I love the pattern you did! I had no idea you had so many designs up...might be dangerous for me since I love the ones I just made so much! Better polish up my skills. :)

    1. i wish i could take credit for this one but it is Chevron Mitts by Imperial Yarn. thank you for your note, Megan! :)
