Thanks guys. I'm hoping I get better about joining needles, 'cause you can see that line going up the front. I thought I was pulling tight enough! Ugh. Started the other mitten but got stuck at the part of the thumb where you have to cast on again. I was knitting at a friend's house last night and didn't have my laptop to youtube it again. lol Might actually start a new thread about that... see if I can get some advice.
Life's too short to knit with scratchy yarn.
