and it takes "four"

to make a "pair!" mostly because i am that way.

i was mostly curious as to whether i could get a matching pair of mitts from one ball of mini-mochi. my first ball of yarn was short a few grams and i could not get a matching color sequence which was why i started the left mitt with another ball of yarn. then i noticed that i could get a matching sequence with the second ball. i found what i thought was the same sequence going the same direction and almost finished the 2nd right mitt when i realized that there was a bluish teal and a purplish teal which were now going in the wrong order. being anal, i frogged my 2nd right mitt and started from the opposite end of the ball (which was what i was originally going to do but obviously didn't). so i've knit one left mitt and three right mitts for a "pair." but hey, they match and i am happy!

LOL! Adrienne ;-) I would not mind for an extra right fingerless mitten... (I always wear one on the right hand due to Carpal and Guyon Tunnel Syndrome) Guess you can make someone happy with the extra one in time...

Gorgeous mitts! I'm very entertained by the search for the matching sequence of colors :)

Okay, so one from the inside of the ball and one from the outside should match right?

Very pretty - and wow - that's focus to knit so many to get a matching pair!
