Crochet Gloves/Mittens... NOT KNIT, yet...
So, I gave these charmers to my dd.... my youngest.... who only basically allows for the crochet bun covers to adorn her. She is sorta kinda anti crochet... heeeeee.... not in a mean-spirited way... but just in a "uh, sorry but crochet is NOT cool for my age" way.... yep...sounds worse than it is.. really... But anyhow.. she was admiring my gloves, so I bestowed them upon her. Yet they still reside on my kitchen table? hee hee... So maybe I inadvertantly pushed them upon her? who knows. She is usually quite polite and careful NOT to hurt my feelings...so maybe she was being thoughtful in her admitted admiration and not actually desiring to own such handmade gems... oh well... perhaps I will just repo them? hmmm... no harm done.... They are a tad bit tight around the base of the fingers... and I had to tweak the pattern a few times... for length of thumb... and length of the mitten flap... becuz of their snugness, it makes for a challenge to pull the flap over... grrrrr.... but whatever.... OK... KNIT time!! hahaha!! Anyone have a pattern ,... i can do dpns... cuz i do socks..... a KNIT mitten... toddler is even ok... so I can conquer the whole knit mitten scene? Let me know! One thing that I most definitely do NOT have enough confidence to do is the change of color in my knitting..... cant quite figure that out.. hoooray for magic striping... hahah!
OH btw... Marly from A YARN THING podcast was kind enough to comment on my last entry.... Thanks Marly... I am waiting (as I am sure there are others too) for the next podcastarama to come about.... You remind me so much of one of my close friends... It's kind of freaky..... same mannerisms that come across on the podcast are so similar to this friend's mannerisms! So much so...that I told her to take a listen AND she is not even a knitter! or crochetter! ahahahah! She is craft-challenged... and she openly admits it. She tried... she really did.... oh welll.....anyhow... thanks for reading.
