It’s hot, people. Hot!! Like 115-degrees hot. So like any sane person, I’m spending my time indoors, dreaming of winter, and knitting, of course.
Those are the Fingerless Garter Mitts from One Skein. Leigh Radford, I heart you! I want to make everything in this book – hell, I want to live in this book. Everything about it is such perfection – the offbeat-looking models, the quick projects, the yummy yarns. And the convertible Karmann Ghia that the model for this pattern is driving – yeah!! I know, that’s the entire point of "lifestyle" imagery, to evoke an ideal life, one that’s pretty much unattainable – the temperatures are never in the triple digits, and one’s vintage car doesn’t ever break down… It’s total fantasy and total manipulation, and still I adore it.
Those are size one needles, and Koigu premium merino sportweight. Toothpicks, folks, I’m knitting with toothpicks – and enjoying it! That is, if I don’t go blind and get arthritis.
And those LMKG wristwarmers? Done!
I do finish things, you know. Every now and then.
