Thank you all for the nice compliments on Hannah’s new hat. I agree that it looks smashing on her. However, I found it on the floor under the computer desk this morning. You would think that Hannah would know better than to treat hand knits in this manner and yet, there it was. So, Hannah’s in a bit of a hand knit time out, if you know what I mean.
The good news about that, though, is that these new mittens are now for me.
This is the farthest I have ever gotten on a stranded mitten. I’ve tried before but always ended up ripping them out because my tension would be all wonky and it would look like crap. But, a little advice from my library knitting group gurus and I think I’m finally on the right track with this stranded knitting business. Yippee!
I can’t say I’m at the point of actually enjoying the process just yet, though. I haven’t figured out how to hold both yarns at the same time — I’m a thrower — and that makes for slow going. On the other hand, I do love watching the pattern emerge and find myself knitting “just one more row” to see what happens next.
Sometimes I think I am way too easily entertained.
