03:41 pm - 'oles in me mitts!
A friend of mine is a jeweller, and made me my wedding ring. We wanted to pay her for it, and she sweetly asked if she could have the payment in knitted goods! These are one of the items that I made in payment:

These are the Dashing fingerless mitts in Traveller Mali yarn.

But alas, I can't seem to get rid of the hole in the thumb when I pick up stitches! I tried a few times to rectify the situation, but regardless, the hole remained! Any ideas?

Gorgeous colors!

I think your best bet would be to stitch over it - thread a bit of yarn through following the path of the stitches, and essentially create a new stitch in that row to fill in the hole.

Good idea. I was trying to realign the way I picked up stitches, but no matter how I tried, there was still a hole. Will try stitching it over tonight.

Sometimes when I am making socks, I knit a stitch together with one in the next row that has already been knit, to cover the hole. Another option is to make a new stitch and knit that together with one that already exists. (I know this is all difficult to envision, but there should be tutorials out there.)
