Having said that! Oh boy were these trouble. Fun, yes. Easy… sometimes. But first there were gauge issues. Then there were more gauge issues. Then there was that pesky dropped stitch just as I almost had the first one done (I did go back and redo that thumb. I am not ashamed of my perfectionism. Usually.), there was that issue of getting distracted by socks. Then there was that other issue of misplacing my Chibis when I needed them most… and I still haven’t found them. I don’t think I will until I bother to go buy new ones. And there’s no way in heck that I’m buying new ones when I know that there are at least seven floating around my house somewhere. But I’m fortunate enough to have friends who knit, and friends who come to the rescue, and friends who knit and come to the rescue.
Pattern: Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang
Yarn: Colourmart Cashmere (of unknown content beyond that; some sort of fingering wt) in Flannel and Ashland Bay Colonial as dyed by yours truly.
Needles: US1.5 Addi Turbos, 40″
Duration: Too Damn Long (late August to early October)
Mods: Used US1.5s as noted above to deal with wonky gauge, only used two repeats of chart A on arm, used less than one repeat of chart A on hand. Completely disregarded all conventional rules about mixing various fibers when doing stranded colourwork.
