Not Feeling It

Not 100% thrilled with the Peek-A-Boo mittens. I frogged back to before the split and then re-knit a nice plain vanilla one.

Here’s why…

See hole much too wonky.

And much too large. Ugh.

I’m knitting on three’s and other than that they are working out just fine, so probably the solution is to (a) cast off less and (b) go down a couple needle sizes to get firmness. I’m just not that patient and these have to get through a Detroit winter, and is only the first in a series of mittens I’m knitting for Mother, so I’m really feeling this is a better solution.
