That is correct! .32 miles to knit and I break the 5 mile mark on my KnitMeter! I’m still not sure I’ll make it, but we are in the home stretch. I must confess, I’m a little nervous I’ll finish at like, 4.98 miles or something. Never been much good at math.
The Punta Merisoft cowl, hat and mittens that started out as Two Drunkards wound up as seeded rib, thanks to the talented “Smariek Knits“. I’ve left the cables on the mittens, but frankly, those crazy-complicated twisty lines were giving me seizures. In fact, I found that the cables did not give the cowl or the hat enough of the slouchy stretch that I wanted. Though I have knitted each of these pieces at least twice, I’ve taken the high road and only logged the mileage once Man, they are taking FOR-ever to dry.
Bet I can finish these cute little cashmere gloves today! This is a great vintage pattern with really pretty results and are surprisingly easy to knit. There is a lovely, leaf-like edging that I am sure I’ll knit again.
I had this crazy idea that I would actually leave the house today but…
…crazy right? You can’t see it but just beyond the trees is a road. Sadly, it is still untouched by a snow plow.
About an hour ago, I was attempting to do the math…miles vs. hours. The equation looks something like this: .32 miles/61.75 hours. I figured I should reserve some of the hours for sleeping and eating. I thought about it and began to lament. No way I was getting the Birthday Cardi done. It looked like I’d make 4.86. Carl asked “What can you knock out real quick?” Well! What a question!
I’ve been wanting these fingerless gloves from Vogue Knitting for quite some time. I’m thinking I could knit ‘em up quick with the Drops Alpaca unravelled from the Bower Cardigan I’ll never finish. One step forward, two steps back.
