And now we knit

This is at the point where we just go round and round and round until it’s tall enough.

Which shouldn’t take too terribly much longer.  Maybe a few more inches…

And, as usual, this one will have quick quick quick decreases (I have a plan for this little pinwheel looking thing I think will be awesome), so I’m trying it on like this every few rows to see how it fits.  Won’t be long now!

Bigger and bigger

The hat continues to grow.

I continue to like how ribbing looks and behaves slightly (ever so slightly) more than I dislike actually knitting it.

And I am quite looking forward to watching these go careening about.  It should just about be consolation for all that ribbing.

We’re going to have to have a long chat about those increases at some point.  They’re just lifted increases, but fiddled about with just a bit to keep them nicely matched.  I’m dearly hoping I can find someone else that has done a lovely, thorough explanation of them and just point at that.  But if not, I may have to break down and do it myself.  Because they really are too tidy not to share!

Two down

One mitt two mitt red mitt blue mitt (well…purple mitts, but we’ll call that a fair interpretation of the text).

And, just because it’s how these things go around here, a hat sort of leapt on the needles. to go with it.

Matched

This is one of those tiny tiny things that likely matters to no one but me, but I deeply love how nicely these increases are mirrored.  It’s a tiny bit fiddly, and I’ll have to explain it all in the pattern, but wow is it satisfying to the part of my brain that thrives on this sort of thing!

Clicking along

It’s grown!  First mitt is more or less sorted save for a thumb.
