Moving Day

Yesterday turned into moving day.....moving offices that is.  Now I'm comfortable moved in with a more normal office mate and hopeful the office will be less stressful and drama filled.

In knitting news...I've started some fingerless gloves bases on the knitty pattern Broad Street Mittens.  Some modifications will definitely occur...no mitten flap and no closed thumb but that should be an easy mod.  I started this weekend and was in serious denial.  I kept thinking they were too small but kept knitting.  Finally I stopped and faced facts!

They were a little snug on me and the recipient (who isn't here to try them on) has bigger hands than I do.  So I've added stitches (hopefully not too many...although I'm a little worried about that) and am progressing!

Now that the ribbing is done they should move a little faster!

It's better to fit too loose than too tight. Looks good!

Welcome to my world, where all is do is knit mittens and fingers. :)

They are lovely and your DPN's look nice too! I just picked up a pair of Crystal Palace Bamboo DPN US 7 for $1 at our thrift store. They had another package that I could have got but I thought it would be better to leave them for someone else to get a good buy! Plus, I think everyone at my knit night goes there once a month just to check things out. I bet someone grabs them up.

Wow! Do you notice how my comments always reflect back to me? Gotta work on that.

If you used wool, wet and block them when you're done and they will grow...

Did you just need to rip back to the ribbing, or did you do a whole do-over?? I still have done fingers in gloves yet--scaredy-cat me.
