Okay. Maybe my plan of trying to watch ALL of season 3 of "24" this week is producing some strange urgency and the desire to constantly provide updates and maybe also the urge to ask people who they work for and to have a cliffhanger every hour on the hour....
I thought I'd show you something funny. Not really "Funny Haha" more "Funny want to curl up in the corner rocking and humming tunelessly".
Yes, that is mitten number 2. Yes, that is the thumb 4 rounds from completion. Yes, that is the end of the yarn.
Some frantic searching turned up a 1 meter (approximately) scrap of this yarn. I knit on. I finished the thumb. I had this much yarn left:
5 inches. Just enough to close the thumb and weave in the end. 5 (FIVE!!!!) inches!!!!
So, here they are.
I can't believe how closely they match. They are almost identical. I made NO effort to get the yarn to start in the same place in the colors b/c I didn't think that it would work since I was using 2 strands. Magic!
This is the last Christmas present so:
"NOW can I knit on the Clapotis??? (imagine whiny child's voice). What's that? I should knit the birthday present that is to be given this week? What? Okay, Fine. I'll knit the birthday present. But THEN can I knit on the Clapotis??? "
