In case you’re wondering what’s happened to my Sanquhar gloves – I’ve had to put them down for a little while.
Firstly, the tiny weeny 1.5mm needles were giving me blisters on my left index finger where I picked up the left hand yarn and scrapped the tip of the needle down my finger tip – ouch! 😯
The second and more serious problem was a bad case of “Fat-Finger”. 👿
No, Fat-Finger is not some terrible incurable disease, it was this…
I generally call this the “rude” stage of knitting a glove because this is where it gets fiddley and the swearing starts – and because the glove seems to be making a rude gesture at me!
I seem to have gotten too comfortable with the fair isle and slackened off my tension.
Finger number two is decidedly wider than number one!
I’m gonna leave it a little while then knit finger three. I can then decide which finger needs frogging and reknitting.
I’m trying to finish Ombre to wear at Christmas so Sanquhar will be on hold….
….but it’s so B***dy cold I wish they were done now! 🙂
