It wasn't until I cast off the mitten and tried a pair on that I discovered the problem. Can you spot it?
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! HOW did I not notice this sooner?
(Still guessing the error? I have THREE right hands. THREE. I should have TWO right hands and ONE left hand. Instead I put the thumb in the wrong place.)
I just can't... even... understand how I did that? How did I not catch it in my last blog photo where it was obvious there too? See?
Why can't I just finish these damn mittens?
Clearly this yarn is cursed. I tried to knit with it a looooong time ago and it bit me in the butt then too.
I did the only thing I could do- I frogged back to where I just was beginning the thumb increases.
And then- I did the only thing I could bring myself to do- I put this project in time out. I'm not touching this thing for a week. I'm going to do something else and PURGE myself from this experience and then, I will hopefully pick up and start again. I clearly need something easy and mindless- so I'm going to knit a simple pair of socks and tell myself I'm not the biggest idiot in the world... even though I feel like that right now.
