Monday stuff.

Remember those fingerless gloves I was knitting from llama yarn for a friend?

I finished them Friday evening, including weaving in the ends. When I tried them on, I was horrified to discover that the second one was at least an inch shorter than the first. Apparently I cannot remember what I did two hours ago.

What you see above are the remnants of the second half of the second glove. Tragically, those remnants are all less than a couple feet long because I wove in the ends so thoroughly that they were impossible to unpick. Happily, there was plenty of yarn to reknit.

Need a book to entice a very young knitter? Look no further.

    I discovered that book while browsing The Red Balloon Bookshop at the airport one day … fabulous book!

    I like the bigger kitty, how he looks so upright in his sweater. I’ve thought about doing that for Katniss. I think about a lot of things for Katniss, and then I remember how much I like my skin.
    (I just did that with a pair of socks. I made one mistake worth two rows, and the second sock is like an inch too short. They’re in time out.)

    Oh! The book! What delightful illustrations! (Sorry about the mitts.)

    Ouch! Sorry about the mitts. Having done that sort of thing myself, I can empathize.
    The book looks absolutely wonderful. I’ll check if my library has it. If not, I’ll pester them to buy it, so lots of people will get to enjoy it.

    I read that very book to my son this summer! Yes, that exact book as my mom lives 5 blocks from the Milltown Library.
