Well, it’s not so much procrastination really – I like to think I’ve moved past putting things off just for the sake of putting them off. Like blogging, for example. It’s not a lack of things to say, it’s more like just not having enough hours in the day…look, it’s already 1 am and I’m not sleeping yet. I haven’t been able to get to bed before 1 am in ages!
Anyway, enough of that. Onto the productivity.
I tried Kitchener stitching the top of the first mitten closed, because when I thread the yarn through the remaining stitches it doesn’t tend to hold too well. Yeah, didn’t go so well.
Oh well. I just threaded the yarn through a couple times, and I’ll make sure to secure the tail best I can on the inside. The second mitten has commenced, although the first still doesn’t have a thumb. I’m using my swallow casein dpns, which were my very first set! Ah, memories.
A finished mimi! So mine’s not verylong, but it’s prettylong.
Pattern: Amy Singer – I cast on 25 stitches for more of a scarf.
Yarn: my handdyed, handspun merino! About 200 yards.
Needles: Denise US9
Finished: November 13, 2005
I love it! It was all curly going into a pin-and-spray blocking, but it’s all nice and spread out now. I know it’ll curl back up again, but for now it’s perfect. And my merino is soft and lovely, if I do say so myself!
In other productivity news…today I went to a three-hour lab and two two-hour lectures, and I managed to knit 2 titbits, the second-to-last koigu hexagon, the cuff of the second mitten, and a few (looong) rows on bpt. Ah, productivity!
