This falls under the category "learning experience" because I'm knitting on the back end of the double pointed needles. Or since this is stockinette by this point, I should say purling. Since I am knitting combination style, this is not as much of a problem, except for increased opportunities to stick myself with the DPNs. Because it literally took me about 10 trys to start the k1 p1 ribbing on the DPNs, I am just happy that it worked at all.
Knit with 5 #4 DPNs, using Cherry Tree Hill River Run colorway held together with Madil Kid Seta 832. Fingerless Mitten pattern free from Borealis Yarns with yarn purchase.
