Do you see the problem here? urg

I didn't. How could I miss that? I was so excited that I was almost done with these last night until I put the two mitts together (like I should have done when I first started that thumb) and realized my mistake. I thought that I had repeated the pattern 6 times before the thumb gusset when, in fact, it was only 5. I should have written this stuff down!

double urg

I bet you can guess what I will be doing tonight.

Any advice on how to rip back without dropping stitches in those lace sections?


  1. Go to this cool blog and search 'lace surgery' in the search bar @ the top. It's not exactly the same thing, but oud possibly apply. I'm not sure if you'll want to do this technique for as far back as you're going, but...*shrug*

  2. Oh dear. My advice? Pray as you are frogging.

  3. Maybe it would be easier to cut off your thumb and re attach it a little higher, LOL

    But I know you'll figure it out, just go S...L....O....W

  4. I'll agree with blacksheep - pray as you frog. I hope it turns out well.


  5. I haven't got much advice, but its probably too late anyway. I usually just pull and hope for the best.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
