The first pair of Cigar Gloves are done:
But that’s not the great news! I had an apiphany! I think the reason my wrist “went” was due to working with metal needles. During knitting the fingers I switched to a set of Brittany Birch dpn’s I’d bought earlier this year. OMG! Seriously – it was like knitting with air. They were amazing! I’ve a feeling that 2006 will be “The Year of Selling Metal Needles” followed by “The Year of Buying Wooden Needles”.
For all the nauseating yarn, needles and pattern details, scoot over to the Dyed in the Wool FO blog.
I’m now debating whether I should plough on with Amble socks, or make a start on Cigar Gloves number 2. I think we all know that the socks should be done first, since they are the oldest (and I haven’t even cast on for the gloves yet).
Zero progress since Sunday, and I’ve resigned myself to it being late. My poor mum! It’s always her stuff that gets done last, because she’s so reasonable about the whole thing. I’ll still wrap it and give her a present, but I’ll include an IOU!
The Poll is still open (see this post) and at the time of going to press we have YES 70%, NO 0% and I’LL WAIT 30%.
Thanks for all the “Congratulations” on my exam results. Hopefully, 2006 should be a heck of a lot easier, although pretty much all of the year will be self-directed. I have to come up with my own project topic (Science in Society) and create a massive essay. Help!
