The Case of the Mitten Mystery

Every knitter has projects that they work on then set aside, rinse and repeat multiple times. 

One of my time out projects is in its second year. The coordinating hat for the Peerie Flooers mittens was finished ages ago and is lovely. 

The mittens have stalled. 

Tonight, as I was contemplating which project to work on at Knit Night, these mittens came to mind. (There is a certain purple cardigan that is on my hate list right now because it takes soooooo long to do a single row, so I don't want to work on it.)

Ran down to the basement and brought two contenders upstairs with me:  the mittens and the Modern Quilt Wrap that was started a year ago. 

I'm pretty sure it was about this time a year ago that I last touched the mitts. After pulling everything out of its storage bag, it's clear there is a mystery at hand.  Not exactly sure where I am in the pattern, hopefully the marker tape is accurate. 

It was easy to figure out why the thumb stitches are set aside on waste yarn, but why is the mitten body on waste yarn?  Why did I take most of the ball bands off the yarn? Why did I stop mid row? 

These are the burning questions in the Case of the Mitten Mystery.  I'd say stay tuned to see how it turns out, but at this rate it could be a few years.
