I'm on my 6th mitten! I'm experimenting with my Sideways pattern and trying to knit a version with less seaming.
In this one I worked the thumb portion first and then went on to do side one and continued on to side two.
But when I started side two I tried picking up each stitch at the end of the first side and knit them together thereby joining the tips - no seaming!
The pattern for these will be available in my Ravelry Store in a few days.
