If anyone else noticed the strangeness in my mittens yesterday and politely didn't say anything: thank you.  I think.  Because it took me knitting all of the second thumb, binding off, and weaving in the ends to realize.... I had two right-hand mittens.  Dangit!

Anyone know of any good tutorials for slipping in an afterthought thumb when you hadn't planned for it?  I've already ripped out and sewn up the offending thumb hole.

Oh noes! (I totally didn't notice at all, by the way)

As for the fixing, there's directions for an afterthought thumb (or Thumb Trick) in EZ's Knitter's Almanac. Didn't we both get a copy, with vague plans of a KAL together? Anyway, strangely enough, I had the exact page with the thumb directions bookmarked: page 59 (bottom of the page). Good luck!

I didn't notice. Honest. It happens to the best of us!

I have heard of two left feet, but not 2 right hands. Hee hee a little (very little joke there) Sorry that happened. Your mittens are lovely by the way.

Oh no! I just now read the last post, after reading this one. I don't think I would have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out!
