On the mend


Meh. It doesn't look so bad.


Except that with decreases, the colors aren't lining up so well.


Frog heap.


Better.


Much better. It's a thumb and a little embellishment away from complete. But wait, it won't be done until the mate is finished. At least it stands a chance of being finished now.

Bravo- with what I know about knitting I thought you were ripping out the lower part! Whew. It looks amazing. :)

I feel your pain. The best decision isn't always the easiest.

Does that mitten look like a smiling alligator to you? It's happy in any case.

Glad you persevered!! It didn't sound like you to give up on these beautiful mittens (especially because we've seen your previous mittens:) )-so, good for you!

Just a hint..always weave in some spandex with all fibers..especially mittens. You always want some spring back in the finished product.
