So close, and yet…

15 September, 2007 at 3:40 pm (caturday, knitting)

Finally finished up mitt #1. Bound off (and I love the tubular bind off), wove in every last end. Trimmed the ends, even! Tried it on to make sure everything was ready to go for blocking.

Oh. So that’s why the stitch count for the thumb ribbing was off. I suppose that’s what I get for trying to knit during class.

I’m not sure if I should just secure the stitch and be done with it, or cut off the thumb ribbing and redo. I’m leaning toward a redo… the bind off is a little tight anyway.

So what does one do in the middle of a knitting crisis but… cast on for a new project?

Clearly the most impressive knitting you’ve seen all week. Heh. But it should look much better as soon as it’s long enough to fit around the circular needle.

Kitty, who would normally be all over this silk yarn, is too busy having an eyestaring contest to care.

    Oh no! That’s too sad about the thumb. They really will be a lovely pair of mitts when they’re all finished!

    Secure it and move on. It is very ‘zen’ to have a mistake in each piece you create. That’s what keeps me from getting all twitchy when I knit.
