So my other projects...I finished something for a Secret Santa gift. I hope she likes it. Could it be yours??
I cast on and have been working on the Branching Out Scarf with the Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool that Kris W included in my FFBE package. Kris said it would be a fast and fun knit, and she is right. I'd like to be able to wear it for Thanksgiving, but I am not sure about that, because today, I got sidetracked.
When I was at knitting group Tuesday night, one of the ladies was working on some fingerless gloves, and brought along a few she'd completed. But the cool thing was...she was knitting them on two circular needles. I'd never seen it done before, and I was intrigued, and listened as she explained how it's done. I understood the theory, but didn't know if I could do it. I thought they'd make good gifts for my teenaged neices, quick and fun. I know they can be done on DPNs but I really wanted to try the 2 circs. So....guess what I did this afternoon? Yep. I dove right in and I understand! Luckily I had 2 same size circs in different brands because that is key for me. I wish I'd used spare yarn to practice, but since my knitting time is precious I wanted to get started on a pair right away. If and when I knit socks, I think I will try this method. less needles to drop. Sometimes I surprise myself how quickly I pick up a technique...and then surprise myself even more when the simplest of techniques escape me.
