Brother dearest is forwarding Lady B northwards this week! Yay! Will solve a raft of problems & ease any return to the workforce:) Anticipation could kill me right now. Of course, I understand it’s not on its way until he posts it… hint, hint.
I resisted the urge to start another mindless project, and casted on for Mitt No. 2. It’s not a slog this time, and I got a good amount done, yesterday. Depending on how good the thumb placement is, I may have to rip her back a bit… As much as I adore Elizabeth Zimmermann’s writing style, she’s light on the details. So, I eyeballed it. Guided only by the fingerless gloves pattern. I’m at the stage where I know this eyeballing thing is bound to result in ripping back… If it’s all good, pictures will follow.
Finding internet tutorials and other resources has given me a push to keep at her. My way of holding yarn in my left hand is to wrap it around the second finger, and then guide with the index. I found wrapping the pinkie difficult for feeding more yarn on the floats. Anyhow, I’m not hanging on for dear life anymore, and I love seeing the patterns knit up.
