My saddles are now complete. The finished length of each is 5" and the width is 2". If I was knitting the saddles again I would knit both saddles at the time on the same needles but pull the wool from 2 separate balls. This is another excellent tip from Ann in Webster, NY.
But wait, I forgot, I am knitting the saddles again. I ordered additional yarn to make a FLAK sweater for the hubby :)
