All of my knitting projects have been neglected due to my apparently chronic fuzzy mouth. Yesterday I discovered that if I chew gum-sugarless the kind with xylitol, I can knit again without gagging so I lined them all up on the table and had a go at them one at time.
I spent 40 odd minutes knitting along with Arne who was making a spectacular mitten. I had to sit on my hands to keep from buying the pattern. I may yet even though I hate making colorwork mittens.
Speaking of colorwork mittens, the Bernies are a no go. This is where the top decrease start. You can see I still have a lot of hand left. They are also too tight. In defense of the pattern, the author did say she hadn't actually knit these yet. She just generated the chart on her computer. So it's off to the frog pond with it. If I am going to take my time with fiddling with colorwork mittens I want some that look better than this.
I've got bigger fish to fry in the colorwork department anyway. I am only an inch past the armholes on the Festive Doodle and that just won't do.
