Woeful Wednesday

I wanted some high-quality sick person comfort knitting, so I picked out some Shetland Aran in an oatmealy sheep colour and got going on some sideways garter stitch mitts.

Cuff edge

I trimmed the cuff with the easiest of easy lace edgings, which looks fascinating and sculptural in a sturdy yarn at this gauge.

Thumb gusset

I short-rowed a thumb gusset that closely resembles my regular in-the-round one, only sideways.

Tragedy!

It wasn't until I had already started the second mitt that I realized I'd used just over three-quarters of my available yarn to finish just over one-half of the total knitting.

If anyone needs me, I'll be unknitting in the corner. Heh.

So what is the yarn? Maybe someone has some for you. Jamieson's Soft Shetland perhaps?
