This is your occasional reminder to set your thumb stitches aside on a piece of scrap yarn (rather than a spare needle) if at all possible.  You’ll get a much better sense of the fit of the mitt when you try it on if they’re on something bendy (and you should try your mitts on to make sure the thumb opening is deep enough and the mitt is long enough, even a few rows can make a big difference).

Mitts should be out Tuesday (as always, barring any unforeseen calamities, but it’s 2020 so let’s not tempt fate).
