Rip it…

rippng out a mitten topThat’s not really a descriptive title for the successful thing I just accomplished.

I went into my Ravelry queue and deleted any pattern that called for:

  • cables
  • fussiness

I also deleted almost every sock pattern. Yup. I’m not a sock knitter!

OKAY – how ’bout an update this week? Well, I ripped out the top part of a mitten I’m knitting for a friend. 

WAIT! This was the second time I did that… 9/17 and 8/28. Hummm. Huh? Interesting.

The finger portion was far more pointed than the pair. Can’t have that. And, if you’re thinking, “I’ll make a whole new mitten–as in the third of the pair–well, you be wrong!” Not smart. Just rip and redo.

    I too an not a sock knitter and love fingerless mits. I made 1 and 3/4 before casting them aside and exploring the tantalizing world of knitfitti. Perhaps this is in the cards for you too??
