Just because it dings doesn't mean it's done

Ok guys, it's knitting content time. Really quick, just wanted to say, I know everyone has different opinions on yesterday's post, but I want to tell you all that I added something to the bottom of it, so if you already read it, go read the bottom part after the "ETA." Again, didn't mean to offend anyone, just sharing my opinion. Moving on.

On Ravelry as you most know, I'm part of a Fingerless Fanatics Group (ravelry link).We're doing a May KAL (ravelry), which I was in for, but then out of because of my wrist, but now I'm back in. I bought yarn yesterday for Bronte's Mitts (pdf) and I love it. It's Mondial Dolce Mohair (ravelry), which is a little heavier than the pattern called for, (a strand of fingering weight with a strand of laceweight mohair) but that's ok because my hands are a little bigger than the pattern calls for. :) I love it. It's so squishy and soft...


I'm on the thumb gusset for endpaper mitt number one, which I am not taking a picture of... imagine the picture from the other day, but bigger. If I make this pattern again, I'm going to redo the chart so that it works out better... it irritates me a little that it doesn't flow from the back of the hand to the front.

Oh and guess what? I'm almost to the heel on my plain vanilla sock I started... well... a long time ago. Yay! Maybe we can talk Angie into posting soon? Yes? ;)

Well now I'm curious what you mean about the pattern flowing from front to back on the Endpapers. You must knit another pair and show the difference :)

PS - You certainly didn't offend me with your view. . . everyone is entitled to their own opinion! I think more people agree with you than with me, anyway!

The yarn looks very nice, remember life is shorter than we think, have as much fun as you can.

Pretty yarn. Very pretty yarn. May just have to investigate.
