Apparently I can’t fit ten fingers into a picture.3
After a crazy busy week with no time for knitting nor blogging… Finally!!1
These pictures are terrible because it was so sunny I couldn’t tell what I was doing. Excuses, excuses.
I thought I would do a quick thing about cabling without a cable needle. This is a slip two to cable needle, hold in back, knit two, knit two from cable needle, sans the cable needle:
I personally find this much quicker and less fiddly than bothering with a cable needle. It’s just that one scary step you have to get past!
Cousteau in the sunlight = divine:2
I promise I will never blog about these ever again.
Just in time for a heat wave (21 degrees at 6pm today!) too; my timing is fantastic.
The pattern is Wood Elves Gloves, in Tosh Merino Light in (a quite yellow skein of) Magnolia Leaf, with conductive thread in the right thumb and index finger. Modelled here by the recipient, my mum.1
Sorry for the massive glove spam today but I had my balcony knitting premiere!
Sure, I need to get some more greenery for the flowerpots, and I had a blanket wrapped around me, and that is a super lazy Pimms with hardly any fruit, but. Balcony knitting! Hurrah!!2
2.5 fingers down, 2.5 to go!1
This winter I’ve knit lots of gloves. Right gloves.
Or, as Captain Jack might call them, Doctor Detector Protectors. NO LEFTIE NEEDED.
(Really I’m making smartphone gloves for my mother and my sister and I thought I’d combat SSS by switching it up and doing them one by one rather than pair by pair. I just wanted an excuse to post that gif.)0
