So “knitting like the clappers” = “very limited blogging time”. This is just a sneak preview to show that I’m happy with my decision from yesterday’s choice.
I’ve put in the spare yarn for the thumb-trick at this stage, but I’m sceptical about whether it’s going to work with the stitch pattern. I’ve learned – the hard way – that you can’t just pick-up and knit in the opposite direction when you’re in ribbing. I’ve a feeling, since I’m working with a single travelling stitch, that the wrong-side might not seem so much like ribbing and I might just get away with it. At the very least, I’m going to learn something – the hard way – again!
I’m hoping to be sufficiently advanced, by tomorrow, to be able to give you a guided tour of what I did to make these mittens by adapting Wooly Wormhead’s pattern for the Elsica Hat. Perhaps even a “how-to” for knitting two-at-a-time. For now though, it’s all talk; and if I don’t get back to the knitting that’s all it’ll ever be.
