My poor little blog – I haven’t posted for over a month! And, even worse, before tonight I hadn’t done any knitting since I got home from Dallas. Between being sick twice and being addicted to solving puzzles in Professor Layton and the Curious Village, I just haven’t been spending any of my (very limited) free time on knitting these past couple of weeks.
The good news is that I finished the left mitten while in Dallas. The bad news is, it’s too small. I’ll try washing and blocking it – I suppose it’s possible that it’ll bloom enough to fit. If it does, I’ll try to make the second one quickly. More likely, those two balls of yarn will get stashed away in the drawer and the mittens will have to hibernate until fall. Who wants to knit mittens when spring is finally trying to come?
On the other hand, scarves can still be warn on cool spring mornings and evenings, and I have really been wanting to try out the Malabrigo, so I cast on for the My So Called Scarf tonight. I started and ripped out several times before I finally figured out what I was doing, but I’m pretty sure I’ve got it now. I’m about six rows in, and the herringbone pattern is clear. I think I’m going to be happy with this when it’s done. Now, though, it’s time for bed.
