It amazes me every time how I can cast a project aside when with twenty minutes of extra work it could be finished.
It really is weird.
Yesterday morning I was bumming around in my study looking for something to take with me when me and a couple of the boys head over to Italy on Thursday; I couldn't possibly take the chunky knitted blanket, it'd take over the suitcase and I wanted something I could do on the plane too... crochet perhaps...
Anyway, I stumbled upon this bag with a pair of virtually finished fingerless mittens. And I mean REALLY almost done... like... only casting off and stitch them together almost done...
What was I thinking?
I temporarily abandoned my search to finish them off... and voila'
and before you could say 'wip' they were done. Geesh. Sometimes I get embarrassed by my own weirdness. Why on earth did I leave them languishing in a project bag?
The pink yarn is some gorgeous alpaca I have had in my stash for like ever... it wasn't even a whole ball. I think I might have crocheted my sister a hat with it years ago. The two borders are made of scraps sock yarn held double. I think Koigu, from a Chevron scarf from eons ago. (Remember when chevron scarves were all the rage?).
Done. Round of applause please.
Me think they'll be coming handy (joke!) very soon.
And yes I have found something to take away with me... more about it tomorrow.
