The Kitschen Crockpot

What's that on fire in Flissy's Kitschen?

You know how proud I was of that knuck? Well, it turns out I made a mistake. Two mistakes, actually. I finished the other knuck, realized that I missed a couple repeat rows. I thought it was no big deal, because I thought I made the same mistake on the first one, and it fit anyway. Well I did infact skip the repeat rows, but I also somehow managed to do something really weird to the thumb gusset, so they're not the same. Actually, if you look at my previous post, you'll see that my decrease rows are angling the wrong way. I must have put my stitch markers in the wrong place, but really, I have no idea what I did.

Sigh. So I'll be undoing the thumb gusset on both knucks so they will both be correct. And the same, hopefully.

I don't post about knitting much here, but I actually knit a lot. In progress at the moment I am working on a Clapotis ... I swear I must be the last internet-savvy knitter on the planet to make one. Little did I know it would be about the most boring project EVER. I live for dropping those stitches. I'm not even halfway done and it's been sitting around for months, save for the hour or so I can muster up the patience to plug through another 12 rows.

Anyway, onto the knucks.

I'm so very proud of myself. I thought the pattern would be way harder than it is. It's actually really fun! I'll try to knit the other glove over the weekend, and then do the cuffs on both. You can see the bright teal ball in the corner. I think I will do some stripey business with it but I haven't decided exactly what my plan is. And then maybe go back and do a little embroidery on the top, too? They are going to be very bright and obnoxious. I figure, hey, I totally learned how to knit GLOVES! I want people to notice!
