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.
