Inspired by Ginny of small things.
There’s good news and bad news. The bad news first: The Camilla mittens are turning out to be child-sized because my gauge is way off. I don’t know how it happened—my swatch was spot on—but apparently I don’t get the joy of knitting anything on needles smaller than size 2. I was getting 11 sts/in on size 1 needles instead of 9 sts/in, which I probably would have gotten on size 2s. Sigh. So they won’t be my upcoming giveaway, unless a majority of you have tiny, girl-sized hands. No? I didn’t think so. I’ll just have to think of something else to give away.
The good news is that my Snake Scarf is turning out rather awesomely. I gave a better sssssssneak peek yesterday.
I forgot to get my books in the shot this week. I’m reading an assortment of Yarn Harlot books, magazines and the Eleventh Plague by John Marr and John Baldwin.
I hope to have the snake done by next week's Yarn Along! We'll see.
