wool mitts

My poor hand spun hand knitted mitts have been badly abused this week in the Ohio snow, shoveling, they are all dirty now. They are spun from a fleece artist 50 gms of wool silk blend, Sooo Sooooft and yummmy! I worried and worried that there would not be enough yarn for two mitts and look I had enough for a headband also. I need to keep better track of how many yards in the hand spun yarn and LABEL it before I put the ball away. The pattern should also be marked how much yarn needed, use smaller needles next time or a few fewer stitches. They sure are nice and warm though, ahhhhhh.
Side note, this cable was a nice easy fun pattern, one row of cable, three rows straight . Why can I never figure out if I've knit two or three rows?, duh 1, 2, 3, cable. I can count to three really, I just can't remember if I'm at row 2 or 3.
I feel so silly. I don't do this with tatting, 1 &, 2 &, 3 & uuhhh 2&, 3 no 4 &.
