WiP Wednesday: Volume 2 Issue 2
I had intended to post this last week, but I hadn't done anything but cast on and who really wants to see a picture and hear about casting on? So, I have this to present to you...
I am working on the Ultimate Fingerless Mitts using my Draygone sock yarn in the Pittsburgh Penguin colorway. If you remember, I bought this yarn way last March in an eager attempt to do something fabulous with it during the Playoffs. Well it failed to be worked into a shawl after several attempts. It was benched after a lackluster performance. I sent it down to the minors and just called it back up to attempt a HUGE comeback as these awesome mitts. I have been wanting to make them for a long time. And in reality, fingerless gloves are probably more me than a shawl.
It is interesting that they are striping completely opposite of each other. I am knitting from two different balls and it is just funny how that worked out. It is slow going as they are on a US 2 needle and well it is just straight in-the-round stockinette. Super boring. This is definitely not something that will be completed this month, so you will most certainly see it again on WiPW.
