Will they leave my stuff alone?!
The Smocked Fingerless Mitts are nearly done, and like everything else in the 60-Quick-Knits book, they were fast and fun to knit up.
I have to be honest ... I was careless and knit two left hands. So I pulled one back and then I was careless and forgot to stop knitting the buttonhole spacing! In the recipe, the buttonhole garter stitch goes all the way to the top, but I stopped on the first glove an inch from the top.
Then I forgot to stop on the second glove and knit it to the top. Instead instead of ripping back, I just dropped those four stitches down about six inches and reknit them that way. I have gotten shockingly good at doing that ... even with cables.
The thumb is added in later, and it was a pain to undo that thumb! I weave my ends in really far, and I can never find them again.
The Drop Stitch Scarf (aka Angry Eyes) was finally blocked out, and is ready to gift. It's lovely ... long, soft, and full of alpaca-y goodness.
And cat hair, thanks to Petunia and Edgar Allen Poe.
Thanks for stopping by!
