Well, I was going great guns on my first flap for the convertible mitts that I am knitting. I thought I had the placement of the flap correctly visualized. I would stop every once in awhile and kind of mock try it on, placing the flap up over my fingers. Looked great.
Then when I was getting ready to decrease, I tried it on once more. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I had it totally backwards weird wrong, and so here is where I am now.
Ugh. I feel like I am a reasonably intelligent person, but trying to picture the way the flap should go causes me quite abit of pain. The last time I made some of these, I had to take a sock and put it over the top to figure out how the flap should be positioned. That worked well. I should have done that this time, but I thought I had it all figured out. David also drew me a picture to help me figure out the whole “hinge” factor. I should also have sought out his help prior to my poor first attempt.
Oh well good thing I am a process knitter and not a product knitter. 🙂 So I’ll try again.
I did knit a snake yesterday. I started that Harry Potter Cup on ravelry, and one of the homework options for “Flying” class was to knit something you are afraid of. So to to make sure I could get at least one homework assignment done this month, I whipped out a snake bookmark. He’s kinda cute I think.
Davey yells quite dramatically and runs for the hills every time I show it to him. I appreciate his theatrics.
For my next homework assignment, I am attempting entrelac. It’s going to be a scarf made with Zauberball. Really fun sock yarn. I’ll take some pictures.
It’s time to get the Wee Tot to bed. We are starting to read short chapter books together. Last night we read The Know Nothings. I think it’s been around for awhile. Morris, Boris, Dorris and Norris are pretty funny!
I’m sure I would have to do the same thing–use a sock to visualize the flap. That spatial relations stuff drives me crazy!
that’s my kind of snake.
