To those who may have wondered; I do actually knit and not just hang out in the Shout Box. (BTW, we haven't had a Mame fun fest in awhile.) Anyway, I just finished a mitten last night except for the thumb. I'm just curious if people start the next mitten and then do the thumbs or do they complete the entire mitten before moving on to the next one. I seem to remember reading about socks and that one should start the second sock before finishing the first. Do mittens follow the same rule?
