What’s wrong here?

Subtitled: “Why I shouldn’t knit before 8:00 am”


See, it all started so innocently.  I had been working on these mittens for Patrick the day before.  I almost finished them.  All that was left was to pick up the stitches on the last thumb and knit up a few rows, and then to seam them both up.


I got everyone ready for school, lunches packed, breakfasts eaten (mostly), Vitamin C’s chewed, tennies tied, hoodies on, bookbags over heads and shoulders, and had the youngest 2 out the door right on time to catch the bus.  Now that the leaves have all fallen off the trees in our front yard, I can sit on my bed and look out my window at their bus stop to make sure they don’t do anything too awful while they’re waiting.


I was sitting there watching them and thought, hey, I bet I could whip out that thumb real quick while I’m waiting here,then get started on my regular morning chores.  I picked up the mittens, the ball of yarn, my size 6’s, and promptly did this:

Mitten oops

Can you spot what I did wrong?

Honestly, at this point, I’m just glad I didn’t finish up the thumb.  Maybe I’ll pick these back up after I’ve loaded the dishwasher and folded some clothes.  That’ll teach me to try to sneak in knitting, huh?

    Can’t get into trouble with your mittens knitted together. An ingenious precautionary measure.
