Hi, yes, I had problems!!!
Some places the white thread had to wait 28 stitches!!!! No good!!
Quite tight strands on the inside. But during knitting the first mitten, I learned to drag the strandings to be long enough. I knit continental, both threads on the same finger, and I put the rigth finger back to make it long enough.
And the second mitten is much more beautiful than the first.

Thank you! I am not familiar with the codes you use in your knitting language yet! I have much to learn. :-)
Some times you talk about LYS, hihi, and that means Light in Norwegian!!

BUT I am learning!
Again, thank you!
