I rewarded myself for hard work on Monday night and continued progress on Tuesday by knitting out for a couple of hours last night. I'd already had one shark mitt knit up, and knit up the other from start to finish last night. These will be for Mack and I have plenty of that yarn left to make a wee pair of hand-coverings for Addison.
The shark mitt is supposed to be knit entirely in seed stitch, but my wrist cannot take it, so I used it only as a border and knit the rest in stockinette. We talked about wrists a bit last night -- I'm not the only in the group who suffers from repetitive motion-related problems. I mentioned the lovely striped scarf that I'd hoped to do as a coordinating gift with my SIL's Noro Mitered Mittens, since I have more than a ball of the same Silk Garden colorway left, and that I'd even started it, but it became clear I wouldn't be able to hack the K1,P1 rib for an entire scarf! Well, Ann... she's always talking, you know, sometimes to herself (did someone say "cashmere"?) and sometimes to us all, and sometimes... sometimes there's brilliance! She suggested that I try K3,P1 or some variation that might not be so taxing.
It's a busy day... back to it!
