May 12th, 2006

Last night, there was a package waiting for me when I got home.
This is what was inside.

And for any of you playing from home, take a little look-see at May 12th. Guess what you'll find...

Lil ol' me in Leo's Pismo Hat. He definitely looks better in it.

I'm hitting the home stretch in knitting the step outs for KG. I'm working on the fingers for the completed glove. It's probably not entirely clear but I'm knitting the fingers inside out and double knit. It's a modification of the suggested technique in the original pattern. Instead of double knitting in knit stitch, whereby you knit a stitch, bring the yarn forward, slip a stitch. In this case, you purl a stitch, leave the yarn where it is, slip the next stitch, then purl the next. Keep going in that manner. It saves you the extra step of moving the yarn each time.

Does anyone out there think it'd be useful to see a tutorial for that? I put something together pretty quickly. It make the process much less tedious.

Well, gotta hit the LYS for an untarnished skein of this yarn. They need one in its original condition for the shoot.
