Wow girl you have been very busy!! A huge thank you for the patterns, they should be fun to knit up, I will be using them for my hot chocolate because it's just been plain old COLD here :P.

I just stumbled on your blog after poking around on Ravelry and you are a knitting machine! These coffee sleeves are the perfect projects for me, I'm very new to knitting. Anyway I'm in love with your blog :)

I am having issues with this pattern. I am doing it in the round vs. double point needles, since I don't have a bunch of DPN's. Where I am running into an issue is in:

Round 2: Color A: K4, Color B: K1, *A: K6, B: K1* 4 times, A: K2

I am left, at the end, with knitting color A 3x's vs the instructed "A: K2."

Any idea what I might be doing wrong?
