|I finished knitting the second handwarmer today:|
The ends still need to be woven in, and then I am going to try blocking them. The stitches that I knit with my left hand got kind of wonky every so often. I probably could have gone up a needle size and they would have still fit. In retrospect, having the line of background stitches at the edge of each side of the glove wasn't a good idea - it led to a "seam" visible on the back of the hand. It would have been better for me to add in a part of the pattern so that it would travel around the hand.
It was surprising to see the difference in how the pattern looks depending on which hand held the background yarn. The glove on my left hand (on the right of the photo) was the one with the background yarn held in my left hand; the circles stand out more prominently. I wonder if the difference will be as marked post blocking.
