I am excited to join this KAL. I have plenty of fingerless mitts, but no mittens. This is my first time knitting mittens. I got my yarn this weekend and couldn't wait to cast on. I am using Lamb's Pride and just finished the right hand side one. It was a lot of fun.
After putting the 9 stitches back on the needles from the waste yarn on the gusset and then picking up 4 stitches, I noticed it left a hole on each side. It's where the gusset stitches meet up with the 4 picked up stitches. Am I doing something wrong? I just took the yarn left over from the thumb part and stitched it up. It looks fine, but I am wondering if I could have avoided the holes.
