I know someone posted about this before, but I can't find it. (My searches on this website never give me good results. Is it me or has something changed since everything was switched over? I have to do a lot of online research for my job, so don't wound my ego too much by telling me it's me!)

I bought the February 2008 issue of Knit 'N Style specifically for the article Mitten Techniques. I LOVE doing mittens, and so I was really excited to read this article. Unfortunately, it's part 2 of ??????. Part 1 was in the December 2007 issue, which I don't have. Whoever has it, did you find the article useful? I'm wondering if I should try to order a back issue from the company or if it's not even worth it it.

Oh my! Was that the one that everyone was complaining about awhile back--because they bought the Nov. issue and it only had half the mitten pattern! Nobody even mentioned the reverse situation, that you now find yourself in!

No solutions, but what a pain!
