Annemor #2 - Too Late

#3 Knitpicks dpn's, very old stash yarn, similar to Woolease, gauge 7st = 1" unwashed. Was very nervous of doing these in fingering so used this old worsted, they fit me, a small hand. However they were way too long so after knitting the first one, I just ignored it. It was even too long for the piano player at work. Did the 2nd, frogged the other top today and redoing. Strangely the thumb was too short so the 2nd received a few more rows. If I were to make this pattern again in worsted, I would also lengthen the gusset by doing the increase rows every third. Also rounded the tip slightly. The mitten season has passed here but will likely return in a few months.
