I’ve been toying with project monogamy this week, after a particularly wanton weekend wherein I neither finished nor made progress on any current projects but did cast on for two (COUNT THEM!) new ones. Sunday I decided I just could not sit by any longer while this Koigu I got in a trade a few months back needed to be made into some awesome stripey something.
So, Sunday I started me some fingerless mitts. And finished them tonight. And worked on nothing else in between. It’s like some kind of milestone, here, folks.
Pattern: Long Striped Hand Warmers by the purl bee
Yarn: Koigu Premium Merino in 3 unknown colorways (don’t know where those ballbands went)
Needles: 3.25 mm 40″ Knitpicks Harmony circs
Mods: Did not use a smaller size for the ribbing. Cast on 40 sts, knit the arm & palm on 40. Did 7 increase rounds for the thumb gusset, then 3 rounds plain before separating the thumb sts (mostly just ’cause I didn’t plan my increases well enough). Decreased to 30 before the ribbing on the palm.
They still need a good soak-and-block, but I luuurve them.
Now let’s see if I can keep this monogamy thing up long enough to finish the Damned Handsome Socks.
