Valentine's Day with gratuitous Johnny Depp love! Okay, well, actually, it's just a t-shirt. But it's my favorite, the fit is fantastic, plus I like the way the neckline is a bit wide, making it almost off-shoulder. Not quite though. So I did a mini photo shoot with the shirt on. (talk about boredom) Oh, and I'm so in love.
Actually, I don't feel much like knitting right now. I was so excited about my projects and all, then I suddenly hit a knitting rut. There is something wrong (okay, it's probably just me) with every project! Here are the problems I'm dealing with, please help convince me that this is all in my head (or not a big deal)!
- Endpaper Mitts - I started the second mitt, got 1 rep of the pattern done, and then broke two needles! Not actually sure how they got broken, anyway, I replaced the broken needles with two of my Addi 2.5mm DPNs...now the mitt isn't snug enough! The Addis are just slightly larger than my Brittanys. It's ridiculous. Crazy I tell you.
- Wicked - There are several uneven stitches, which I guess aren't really noticeable to non-knitters, especially on the right side. To me though, I see these HUGE gaping holes and obviously larger stitches. Please...explain to me how silly that is. Especially since I'm so far.
- I Dreamed of Africa socks - I have no clue what my hold up is here. Except maybe it's a bit tough to tug them on...and the stupid bowknot stitch makes me want to scream every time I can't pull it off properly. Which is at least twice each time.
Ahem.... Oh yeah! I got the yarn for my second pair of Endpaper mitts in yesterday (or the day before). It's awesome, I really like Knitpicks Palette and the colors are beautiful. Obviously, my slight current disappointment isn't at all quashing my general love for this pattern. I'll just have to get some more needles. lol I think I might go down another needle size though, since Palette tends to be a bit fatter than regular sock yarns. It was the yarn I used for my Hederas and I used 2.25mms for those. The picture of this yarn came out beautifully, I was really excited. The colors match one of my hoodies too. So what do you guys think? Which color should be the main color? Or should I make reverse mittys like I had wanted to originally?
Yeah, that's all for now. Think I'll go work on those socks...or Wicked. I don't know.
