R'uh R'oh, Shaggy...

(sorry, we're big Scooby Doo fans around here...)

I started the decreases for my niece's Canada mittens, when I decided to try them on. Hmmmm, there seems to be a couple of centimetres of finger sticking out in the place where about 1 centimetre of mitten would be, if I continue the decreases as is.
Houston, we have a problem.
(yes, I'm mixing my movie metaphors)

 but, other than that small problem, they're looking really good! (says the knitter and designer, so no bias here, noooo, none at all...)


 Of course, the next step was to rip back to before I started decreasing, and extend the length of the mitten before I start the decreases again. Crap. I was hoping to have this one finished already and start mitten number two.

Soon. Soon these will be done, and this kid will be crossed off the Christmas list... Unless she asks for something else. I'm a sucker if kids actually ask for hand crafted things...

lovely mittens....have to ask,though, how do you get the stitches below onto the needles so you can just rip back to there...that would certainly be handy to know how to do, like on a certain toddler sweater that I frogged 8 rows of cabling on recently
