Mitten of Doom



This is the Mitten of Doom! I'm not going to knit another one, this isn't a case of second glove syndrome, more 3rd glove, because basically this was my first attempt at fair isle, and also doing it two handed, and although this attempt is ok-ish, it doesn't really meet my high standards, and I have minor issues with the pattern that I would change if I were to knit any more, so basically if I wanted to knit Endpapers I would have to knit another pair, discarding this doomed mitten.

So I am going to swatch with some 4ply wool and get my squared paper out and I'm going to design my own fair isle mittens.

Later this week, I have got a finished object i havent blogged about yet!

More handspun!

And I sold a pattern...yes really, don't you just love Ravelry!

Poor Mitten of Doom but hey, I hear you on how some patterns are personally friendlier than others.

Shame about the mitten of Doom as it was looking pretty. But I know what you mean about things not meeting your standards. Looking forward to seeing your new yarn and congrats on the sale!! BTW You Make My Day - see my blog for details!

Congrats on the patern sale: very exciting. Do you have any plans for your doomed mitt? Will it be frogged or can it become a sculpture of some sort, or a toy or....

Lol, I suffer fairly severely from second mitten syndrome (my work bag is stuffed full of odd 'nearly-made-it' mittens!)

Love your blog.. am adding the link to the Knitting section on mine.

Personally think anyone who can do fair isle is dead clever :-)
