Still catching up with the backlog of finished knitting. Finished these a couple weeks ago. Like Rainy’s Mish-Mash Gloves, these started from a fingerless gauntlet pattern in Sally Melville’s The Knitting Experience Book 2: The Purl Stitch. I stayed closer to the original pattern this time, only adding a couple of stripes. Impressively, I also managed to stay close to the recommended gauge. How? Went a size up on the needles.

Took me less than a week. I like that. On the other hand, I established for certain that when I knit fast my gauge loosens up. The hat fits looser than it should. I like that less. On the other other hand, I already wear it most of the time. It feels nice.

Ended up knitting this one twice. Tried the large size first, and it ended up way too large for my taste. Frogged and restarted the smaller size, making a new set of mistakes. But the hat fits now and I’m not starting again!

I made a scarf for a friend. Nothing fancy, though the choice of soft, cozy Tosh Merino convinced her otherwise. She requested a long and skinny scarf. The finished product measures just over six feet long and four - wait, let me measure: three - inches wide. I had enough yarn to go longer, but if she’s happy I’m happy.

Accidentally made one foot a little pointy. Rather than frog and fix, I just matched the error on the other side. Now instead of making a mistake, I added character.

I realized after finishing it up that I didn’t knit the sweater quite right. I was supposed to increase twice every 6th row on the sleeves, and I only increased once per 6 rows. So that’s why the sleeves looked funky.

Pretty much the only use this got was keeping me warm while typing in the middle of winter. It wasn’t attractive enough that anybody wanted to wear it in public.

This started out as the “maximum scarf” from the Knit Stitch book, but I got bored and went for a modified version of “Joel’s Scarf” instead. This is sport weight yarn, 60 stitch cast on, and and only 3 colors instead of 7. It has turned out to be my most popular scarf.
