It’s hard to tell whether it was a fortunate or unfortunate accident, but last night as I finished the second mitten and tried them both on I realized that they weren’t quite the same. And this wasn’t one of those times where it’s alright to overlook, making it ‘handmade’, no, this was a glaring sizing issue that even Ty could see. It turns out that I had separated the thumb and mitten flap four rows earlier than I was supposed to. What I immediately felt when I put the mitten on was that the hand part felt very cramped, but on the plus side, the mitten flap left lots of room for the fingers. So now I know that fixing the pattern will be pretty easy, but unfortunately I had to rip it out all they way to the thumb, fingers and mitten flap included.

Moral of the story? accidents can be good, even if they’re a pain in the butt.

Today I decided that I’m going to name this pattern Gabriella, once it actually gets finished and written up, it just seems to fit with the complexity of the pattern. I guess it’s part of this whole trying to be better about naming patterns thing, at least something other than cabled glove/mittens , cause really, who would want to knit that?

And in the realm of things I need to be better at, I think I’m going to have a go at finding some test knitters. It’s something that’s crossed my mind several times, but I was never sure how to go about it. But, randomly today I stumbled into some groups on Ravelry all about designers finding test knitters, so the whole thing seems a bit more within reach now. I still have lots to do before I get there, such as refitting the whole thing and trying it out in multiple sizes, but working toward a goal might help push me to go a little faster.

Happy weekend, and Happy Knitting.
