I decided that I was just being silly about the grafting, so I got out my darning needle, popped a guide to Kitchener on the screen and just got on with it. I can’t say I *like* grafting any more than I did before, but it’s done and I am now getting on with joining in the sides of the flower.

Right, I have managed to start the thumb gusset . I get the increases, and am now set up to graft in the flower.
I HATE Kitchener, and I am finding it even more confusing as with only one knit row, I can’t see what the stitches are doing and also, it’s not a sock toe. I have slipped the flower stitches on to a dpn so I can hold it LIKE a sock toe, but my brain says NO, this is WRONG! No fault of the pattern and totally a fault in my brain.
I have messaged GoD Lady and asked her to do the Kitchener.
I still haven’t worked out where row 62 has gone, but I’m only on 42 so I have a while to work on that.
It’s actually a shame I have to stop, as I really want to get on and do these now.
