I was sure I was going to have another big finish on the Champs d'Elysee on Sunday but alas....it was not to be.
I had one mitten done but when I tried it on it was too small. I needed another inch at the top so it was rip, rip, rip and taking out those thrums was not much fun. At least I got one thumb done before disaster struck. I hate knitting thumbs of any kind and thumbs with thrums is torture. Too darn fiddly.
I am happy to say I am finally at the cuff on Altheda BUT it has a very long cuff which doesn't promise to be too much fun. I also got to start another reel of the unspun Lopi which is always scary. Unlike regular yarn it has to be treated with the utmost respect or it just falls apart. Don't we all.
