Okay have been sitting with a mitten waiting for me to ask this question for at least a week. now that i have the hat to match the mittens done i should probably ask the question huh?
anyway i have the cuff done. i am at the point in the pattern where i am pushing the thumb off to the side. there are 28 stitches on my DPNs. The instruction says, Put the first 4 stitches on a stitch holder and continue around. now my question is, am i putting them on the holder and THEN knitting or am i knitting them and then putting them on the holder. if i holster them first then i am sitting with this yarn on one side and my stitches i am suppose to work on the other side which leaves me with a strange string going across. and if i AM suppose to holster first, do i pull tight on that round to minimize that string jump thing that is there or do i knit it like normal and not worry about that extra space?
