Diversion

I haven't touched Bob Dobbs in the last few days. I've looked at it. I've looked at the chart, felt the yarn but I have not knit. I did, however, start this...

It will be a fingerless glove one day. I cast on yesterday and I'm finished with the thumb gusset. The yarn is Blue sky alpaca silk that I got for Christmas 2 years ago. While I may be slightly ignoring a difficult project that needs to be done soon so I can bust out a whole mess of brown sweaters before the cold hits, I am using up ignored stash and the gloves will keep my hands warm.

I thought the gussets looked a little weird, but they look fine in the photo. If you can't see sloppy stitches on the interweb, you can't see them on my (possibly rapidly moving) hands.

and for all of those suckers for wrongside shots:

Nice, right?

I knit a shrug out of that same color of alpaca silk. I just love that stuff! That's a great idea to knit fingerless gloves with it...
