Any one still working on these?

Anyone still working on these? Just wondering if I am the only one that started but never finished them or if there are others in the same boat. One finger done, mitten raised, second finger made too long. I think I frogged it back and need to march on, any one to join me?

I had a bad case of second glove syndrome and left these languishing in the to do box with just two fingers and thumb needing doing, for an entire YEAR! But I've just had a sudden flush of enthusiasm and finished them...

I was back moving forward and stuck again

I am back moving forward and stuck again. I am so brain dead, I am wondering why I ever thought I could knit these. ... I was farther than this when I frogged the first time. Yet that is before dad died, I had to bury him, make decisions for my mom, then she died, now I just have to finish cleaning their house out from 100miles away, get it sold and be trustee for the next 24 years, should the good Lord tarry that long.

As I was tinking back I kept saying this is so familiar, why can't I find it in the chart. So tonight when I picked it up again I said why not check the other chart dumby. Since I had only tink about 1 3/4 rows I checked the chart there and sure enough I found where I was. Woo Hoo! So I knit up though row 8 the second time though chart A. Now it is time to start the thumbs, fine. I see the directions for one thumb. I an missing where it says to make increases for the second thumb. Since I am a two at a time magic looper, I have to know how to do both before I can start row 9. maybe sleeping on it another night I will know what I am doing again when I pick it up again. I pray that is the case. Good night! =-)

well, it's that time again
time for gloves & mitts
well ... it's 70 degrees at 8:22 PM in Ga
but i am thinkin' about gloves & mitts

so, what have YOU been up to


The jusyAny one still here? I picked my gloves back up last night and could not find where I had left off in the pattern. Well I know I am in the part of the cuff I was doing a little different. I had lost the chart I had made for it. I tried to make another chart and was sure it was not the same. Then I found the original one I had made. So I finally put these back on the top of my to do list. Pulled them out at the wrestling meet and could not fine where I was. I was about 20 sts over in a row. Yet none of my rows started that way? I do not know what to do. I am thinking I meed to tink back to the last solid color row. Yet dreading the thought of doing that. I had picked them up while watching a movie over the holidays but thought it would take too much concentration! Now what should I do?

The July 21, 2007 post shows the change was was making in the cuff. it took going back a ways to find it.
