Saw my knitting group thursday night after a 2-month absence and found myself thinking knitting all weekend. I came up with a few ideas to use up yarn i bought back in the spring when a friend was closing up her spinning business, so tonight i decided to start something1.
I have no earthly idea why i do this to myself. I almost always have to cast on 2x. Tonight i thought i was doing pretty well after the 2nd cast-on, except then i discovered i’d picked up a stitch somewhere. I’m lousy at finding my errors and the project is just some fingerless mitts, so i frogged back to the beginning. Doing better this 3rd time thru’! Except now i need to figure out how to CO1 over the gap of the thumb.
At least i got past the M1L, M1R, and M1 problems. Tho’ it took 2 books and KnittingHelp.com.
