We all make mistakes!

Can you spot what is wrong with this mitten?
Yarn: Classic Elite Liberty Wool Print yarn, color "Reflecting Pool"
If you look closely above you will see that the thumb gusset shaping runs right up the middle of the photo. The gusset was incorporated into the body of the mitten hand and is not where the thumb was added. 

OOPS. This is a wonderful reason to put down your knitting when you are tired!

It's a good thing that the pair I did as gifts turned out with the thumbs in the correct spot!
Yarn: Berroco Vintage yarn, colors "Fennel" and "Tide Pool"
Both mittens are from our free Easy Mittens pattern. And it IS an easy pattern, as long as you pay attention when you knit!
