Well, I did a round extra slowly paying super close attention. Found where part of the extra stitches are coming from...at the end of the ...what would you call it, half a round? I had the cable under my yarn causing it to loop around. Fixed that problem at least. This is basically a learning project for my own use anyway, fingerless mitt. So while I'd love for it to end up perfect, I also know there's bound to be mistakes while I'm learning
I'll do a couple more rounds and see if I've finally stopped gaining stitches. Thanks all.
