It’s true. I’ve mentioned my total lack of inability to remain faithful to any one craft before, I’m sure. Plus, with waiting til next payday before I can finally put the finishing touches to Baby Granny Blanket, I needed a change of scenery. And this particular change came in the form of tiny skull and heart shaped fair isle wristwarmers.
Have I ever mentioned I’m a moody teenager at heart?
Anyway, I got the first one all done and seamed, and it seems I have totally overestimated the stretch of a colourwork piece, and can barely get it over my wrist. Bum.
Happily, I spent the early part of this week knitting up a pair of apple green Cupcake mittlets, which fit beautifully (pics soon), so they are keeping my hands warm in the absence of any great progress on the fair isle front.
I’m actually considering seaming up the thumb hole and giving it a new lease of life as something singular. A very emo knitted vase cover, perhaps? Suggestions on a postcard.
