Now with the thumb gussets safely tucked away, it was on to the final section of two by two ribbing. This is always the best place to use continental style, as it creates less of a switch from knit to purl. Trouble for me is always that my index finger gets cramped from pulling the yarn down in front. I’m fast knitting, but I still fumble through the purling.
Off the needles, they’re not as snug as I thought—look at how much they expand!
I don’t think the eyelets at the gusset are supposed to be there. I think I made my “make one”s wrong somehow. Only I think it’s rather a pretty detail, a happy accident if you will, so I’m okay with it. We’ll just have to wait and see once the thumbs are finished.
