we're outside North Pole in the cold pit. Not sure how cold it got there, we're usually 9-11 degrees colder in the winter than they are "in town".
I kind-of know what I did for the pattern. I did the thumbs like the fetching, only for some reason when I took the 7 stitches out, I got 15 on the needles instead of 13. I added two for a total of 17 thumb stitches and stitched away until it was long enough for my thumb. three rounds from the end I k2tog, next to last round I just k, then last round k2tog again and pulled the stitches through.
*note: when I say I finished the round or knit around, I mean I knit in the 4/1 rib as established. I also knit the fingers in the rib to assure they were not loose.
after the cable round in the pattern and about where I was supposed to make the picot edge, I knit the first 7 stitches to waste yarn (or could just put on stitch holder) and finished the round. in that gap on the next round I CO 3 sts and knit in the round for the three finger section. I k2tog and ssk the "pinky" edge to shape it a little but basically knit in the round until it was long enough and then k2tog around alternating with plain k rounds until it was down to few enough stitches to pull through.
for the pointer finger, I put those 7 stitches back on the needle, added about 8 or 9 more in the finger hole. again, knit in the round until it was long enough for my finger then k2tog to close it off.
You'll want to leave long tails until you're all through, just in case you need to close up any holes. The first one I made I had more holes, the second one didn't have any. That's what experience will do for you I guess
