I've finished the first mitt and am not too happy with it, but at the same time not bad for a first attempt.
I knitted the thumb and then sewed it up, but the rib patten hasn't happened here for some reason. Although I can't really tell if it did in the book either as the thumb isn't really visbale.
I didn't really enjoy making this mitt as the book said it was easy and found it more challenging than I imagined to do.
I've seen videos on the web of people using circular needles or 3 needles to make mitts. I wonder if this is any easier for a beginner to make than just making a flat piece and then sewing it together?
