I haven't accomplished much knitting this month as usual. I didn't even go to the knit shop that I discovered in Lincoln last year, maybe that has something to do with buying a ton of sale yarn from Little Knits just before we left on vacation.
I did finish my "table runner, which actually turned out more like a placemat. I really liked working with the bamboo/silk yarn for this. If it didn't cost 8 dollars a skein, I'd make a whole set...And yes, I have heard of blocking. I just don't ever do it.
I decided to knit fingerless gloves with the Manos de Uruguay yarn that I bought in San Luis. I had a beautiful pattern from Monica Jines for fingerless gloves, which called for sports weight yarn. Typical of me, I went ahead, even though the Manos is closer to worsted. Of course, they ended up being too. big. I took a picture of them, but I'm starting over and improvising a little so that I cast on eight fewer stitches. That should do it...and if it doesn't, it's mostly about the journey anyway.
