I think I have mentioned that I hate The Mitten. I may be making friends with it now though. I’m working it again (that’s mitten #3 for those keeping score), this time going up a needle size for the fair isle portion and knitting that section with the work inside out, which helps stretch the floats while still allowing me to see the work. I find that I have some problems still with floats that are too long, producing loose stitches. However, with patience, I can work the extra yarn out (each fair isle section is only 3 rows) with a tug here and there. So here’s a glimpse at The Mitten, Take 3:
