Remember I told you I'm a bit flighty with my projects? This is what I found in one of my bins the other day as I was
A pair of opera-length wool gloves that I had abandoned for who knows what with only THREE fingers left to finish!!! How ridiculous! To put that much effort into something and then just toss it into a bin, with only a handful of minutes left of work to be done. Even I'm appalled at my shocking disregard for this lovely pair of gloves. I must have seen something shiny and got distracted.
Anyway - last night I made amends with them. I apologized profusely (they had been holding a grudge and had allowed themselves to become tossed about in that bin in such a way as to produce a terrible knot that took me at least an hour to unravel) and now these gloves and I are OK again and they are finished. (Except for weaving in ends. Hopefully that won't take another two years.)
I based the pattern off of one in this book, and I have no idea what this yarn is anymore.
It's sad that I didn't keep the label. From this point forward I must try to be more responsible with my yarn and my projects.
Next week, I'll show you the beautiful lace scarf that I dumped half way through because I forgot to knit in a life line and then got hopelessly lost. <sigh>
