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?

There is something wrong with this pattern. None of the stitches match up always off by stitches. Please help fixing need. I'm having the same problem with this as sStacy mentions.
