I finished the second Owl mitt, and was so excited to finally have a finished object to show!
Until I blocked it and put it beside the first Owl mitt:
For some reason I cannot comprehend, I knit 7 extra rounds before starting the owl pattern on the first mitten, resulting in one mitten being longer than the other. I blame Season 2 of Orphan Black, which I was watching at the time. Or maybe the fact that I foolishly said that mitten was perfect in my previous blog post. Ha!
The good news is that the longer mitten is the left hand mitten and my left hand is actually longer than my right. But the bad news is that it's not that much longer. So I will have to fix it. The mistake is right near the beginning of the mitt, so I won't rip back to the error. I'm going to attempt to snip the knitting, pull out a few rounds, and graft it back together.
It sounds so easy on paper. Wish me luck!
