so here is how the pattern is going for hubby's mitts:
Gauge: 6-7 spi on 00 needles, 10 rows = 1 inch
cast on 68. row 1, k across. row 2, p across. repeat rows 1 and 2. row 5-11 k across. row 14: k across needle 1 until 3 stitches remain, psso, k1. needle 2: k1, k2tog, k across until the last 3 stitches on needle, psso, k1. Needle 3 k1, k2tog, knit across.
k across for one inch.
Repeat row 14 (60 stitches remain)
K around for 1 more inch. Repeat row 14 (56 stitches remain)
Intentions: I've decided the cuff, since I made it into a nice gauntlet to fit over the cuff of his winter shirt's sleeve, should be another inch longer before I do the base of the mitt. So I will knit 2 more inches, then begin shaping the base of the hand (mainly I'll be increasing those 4 stitches I just took off, and perhaps add 2 or 4 more, and then I will begin shaping the base of the thumb as well. I'll probably take another photo of the work when I reach the base of the hand, and maybe one or two while I'm doing the thumb. The thumb won't be closed off like it is in a mitten, but remain open, which probably means I'll do the last 4 rows in garter stitch so it won't roll. But I'll probably finish the thumb last, after I get the palm of the mitt done.
My head's starting to ache again. I don't know how much of this I'll actually do tonight.
