18 April, 2009 at 7:27 am (caturday, knitting)

You know how sometimes you start a project and you’re knitting and knitting and all of a sudden you find out that the project you thought you were knitting isn’t actually what the project wants to be?

Like when you take your sock leg and put it on your arm for some inexplicable reason and discover that this little sock leg really, really wants to be a pair of fingerless mitts?

Oolong says it’s just me, but I swear this must happen to other people sometimes. Now I gotta go find some graph paper and chart a thumb gusset.

    I had a friend start 4 different socks (her ‘first’ sock) and every one of them became fingerless gloves. She’d put it on her wrist, and decide she liked them better up there. 🙂

    Ooo, cables! =D Looks great!

    Oolong is wrong. (Sorry, Oolong!)

    Sooner or later, this happens to everyone. Good looking cuff, btw.

    There is a reason I’ve knit so many pairs of fingerless mitts. >_>

    Sometimes you just wanna put the pattern where you can admire it all the time. (That’s a gorgeous one, too.)

    Nice cuff! And Oolong is a very photogenic cat.

    Those will be wonderful mitts! That’s a beautiful yarn, and an equally beautiful design.

    Just wanted to let you know I posted a review of your spindles at my own blog. It’s at [link].
