President’s Day status: I finished one of my fingerless gloves! The thumb gusset is actually pretty interesting, but I just hate the Crystal Palace Merino Frappe. And like socks, I have to make another one now!
Speaking of socks, I am still very much at the starting point on my Jaywalkers. And I’m not loving the Socks that Rock today. I am not a fan of unstretchy sock yarn, and this is a bit too stiff on size 0s. I’m not sure whether to restart on 1s and hope it gets smaller (it seemed way too large before) or just keep going. I seriously feel like my Crystal Palace dpns are going to break while knitting!
I also began Sitcom Chic for my MIL. The pattern is made in Cotton Ease and I still, even after A.Lo’s Banana Fish sweater have a boatload of Cotton Ease in Pineapple. Believe it or not, my MIL wears yellow and other bright colors. She is an art conservator, you know.
Tomorrow — cast on for the second fingerless glove, more of the Jaywalker/Olympic saga and hopefully I can make it through another round of pick ups at my sons’ school, where the drama has been unfolding since last week.
