I haven't made a blog entry lately because I have nothing worth showing. The blue skein of 2-ply merino turned out okay. However, my recent knitting projects are big flops.
I got the bright idea that I'd add a thumb gusset to a mitten pattern. The thumb didn't turn out so I cast off to make a fingerless mitt. Boo.
The biggest defeat of all is the Cold Mountain pattern I swore I'd conquer. Well, it kicked my butt. I got to 2 1/2 repeats and gave up. I cast off instead of frogging it because I have a ton of this soy silk and I wont miss the little bit I used. My plan is to try it again with WOOL. That soy silk stuff was slippery and it wasn't enjoyable to knit with.
