Ya know those gloves I was whining about? The challenge of knitting something that simple without taking lots of breaks for complicated?
Not so simple anymore.
Oh, I've stuck to the rules. I've not added one cable. I've twisted no stitches. I've just knit along, increased for a thumb gusset, like you do.
And then I knit the thumb. That was a little fussy, but not bad.
Now I'm facing the pinky finger.
I guess I've never knit half-fingered mitts from the wrist up before. The fingers aren't significantly more difficult that the half fingers; they just take longer and must be decreased to tips instead of simply bound off. But suddenly, my knitting is one mass of needles. I fear it will be worse when I get past the pinky. It starts first (and thus can be finished first). But the other three start pretty much at the same time.
I'll keep reminding myself that I LIKE litte porcupines.
