So, to any unsuspecting person, this looks like a finished mitten: it doesn't have needles in it anymore, the thumb is done... looks like a mitten, right?
The unfortunate reality is only understandable if either a) you stick your hand in the mitten or b) you turn the mitten inside out.
Time to weave in some ends!
Or maybe, I'll just start the other mitten and pretend I don't have to weave in any ends. I'm still on track for finishing, and I haven't fallen too far behind in my schoolwork!
