Oh, these mittens. I’m ready to shape the top. My row gauge is significantly off. These are very long. One would think one would have checked a year or so ago, but one would be mistaken. Stitch gauge dealt with, but. I’m seriously contemplating ripping it completely out and not restarting. Maybe I should grab my husband’s hand and check first.
Doesn’t help that the kiddo’s school vest grew significantly in length. I’m not surprised, and it’s an easy fix. Either fold up a deep hem (handy later when he’s taller) or snip and unravel and re-edge higher up. But still a bump. And not do-able rinkside at the kiddo’s ice skating class today.
Maybe I should start something new…. Out of Koigu…. That doesn’t need to be a certain shape…
Go look here for a local and backstage look at the Olympics in Whistler. The blog’s always a good read. Right now, it’s a fabulous antidote to pre-recorded, heavily edited coverage we’re stuck watching. Look for the scorpion on a sled.
