I decided to finish Ms Ida. The thumb seemed a bit too tight so I moved up from a size 4 dpn to a size 8. With the color changes I must be tightening my grip and needed to go up a few needle sizes. Plus my other dpns were in other projects.
I’m having some confusion with the thumb decreases while following the chart so I contacted the designer.
I’m wishing I didn’t try to make them flip top mittens but as soon as I finish the thumbs, I’ll see if I can make it all work out.
