(if you don't have a clue how to use one :)
Yes. Once again I have become Stranded.
But I found my compass!
(For all the good that will do?)
More importantly, my map to Estonia arrived in the mail last week. (Folk Knitting in Estonia by Nancy Bush) I love this book! I borrowed it from the library through the Interloan program but they wouldn't renew, even once.
Decided owning this one would be worth it.
I've been trying the different cast-on methods and the braids demonstrated in the book are tempting. I may even try mittens with actual complete thumbs in the very near future. I'm squeezing in a little reward Stranded knitting for each batch of Letter People I work on.
To confess I would rather be knitting might be an understatement. But there will be no disappointing the Kindergartner's of 14th Street School, trying to convince them there are only 10 letters of the alphabet. I may have started looking forward to the end way too soon - not even half way through yet? Yikes!
I've also finished a second pair of the Fetching fingerless mitts. This pair have no picots at the knuckles; I did two rows of linen stitch and then a Kitchener rib bind-off. Sara now owns them, although Stephani may do a secret-sister switch when nobody is looking.
Both girls like the second pair better, without the curling picot edge.
Someone is suffering from 1st pair grab-itis?
