I've been churning out tons of fingerless gloves for Xmas presents over the past week. I LOVE this pattern: Those Mitts by Leslie Friend.
Anyway, I started one this AM and just had a few rounds of ribbing done (I'm using Magic Loop). I picked up the mitt again this afternoon and started knitting away, until I realized I had a hole a couple rows down on one of the edges (ie between the 2 needles). I thought maybe I slipped in a yo, but no... Then I thought maybe I had just not pulled the stitches tight and it was a ladder. But I am a pretty tight knitter...
I went a couple more rounds until the hole was really bothering me, and decided to tink back. When I got close I realized it was right about where I re-started knitting this afternoon. I'd started knitting in the wrong direction!
Since I'd only had a few rows done, the "tube" was still at that stage where it will turn inside out, and I just didn't notice that I was going the wrong way.
I've never done that before, but now I know what it looks like. A little similar to the twisted cast on Mobius effect, but easier to fix.
Just thought my mistake might help someone else someday!
