They are also very hard to get a good photo of not that it had anything to do with the mitts.......I had the hardest time trying to get a shot with the camera ( nothing new lol )........it was dark weather the whole week, so the cell phones even with lights on them were only so so but better than what I had so......

Thumb

Using size 6 needles
Pick up the stitches for the thumb by carefully removing the scrap yarn and placing the stitches on dpns as you do so. It’s easiest to use 2 dpns one for the top and one for the bottom rows. Rearranging onto 3 needles as you knit the first row.
1 ) Knit to the end of the bottom row of the thumb stitches, m1, knit to the end of the top row, m1, join in the round
2 - 3 ) knit
Bind off, weave in ends.
