If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

Wanna See Thumbthing Cool?

I know. I know. Give me a break. I'm still sick.

I just wanted to show you the thumb of the first Tardis Mitten. I used a method my college roommate taught me almost 30 years ago. (Mittens were my second knitting project.) It's very similar to the Gifted method, where you finish seam the thumb with a crochet hook and then put that stitch back on your needles and continue knitting the hand. I have always used that method, unless the pattern had some sort of design element for the thumb, of course, ever since I learned it.

Gifted, by the way, is an excellent mitten pattern. I've made a million of those. They're knit flat on larger needles with bulky yarn so you can knock a pair out in the time it takes you to watch a bad movie on Syfy.

Anyway, back to the Tardis Mitts. I'm kind of sorry now that I didn't just do both mitts at once. I've been making notes on the changes I'm making, but you know how that goes. Hopefully I will be able to decipher my illness-addled scribblings later on.
