I finished my mock cable knits last night, all bar the boring sewing up. I’ve just noticed that the right mitt is the right way up in the photograph – so you can see the mock cable pattern – but the left is not. I’ll pretend I positioned them like that deliberately to show you both sides, but the truth is a repair man was here and it was all a bit of flurry. He’d just had a call and was rushing off as wife has been in a car accident (unharmed, though the other lady might be) and so I wasn’t really concentrating.
I’ve always got an audio book on the go, they’re a great distraction on long journeys or while walking. Clare Balding’s first book My Animals and Other Family was an excellent listen as she writes and narrates so well. Rather than rapsodize about Walking Home: My Family and Other Rambles I’ll link to The Telegraph review, it’s very good.
I’m joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along again. The linky thing’s open for a week if you want to as well.
They’re lovely, are you keeping them or are they a gift?
Thanks Jean. I’m not sure at the moment..
I pretend things in my knitting are on purpose often ;) they are very pretty!
It’s the photography assistant who needs to be fired, not the knitter!
Thank you, it’s a pretty wool.
It’s a “design element” ;-) I love the stripeiness.
They’re both the same, one is just the wrong side up for the photograph.
I really like the yarn, it’s great for knitting – I wasn’t so keen when I tried it for a pair of crochet mitts.
Ahh, I see. It’s incredible what a difference perspective can make, it looks like a different stitch. Could you wear them either way?
Wow, I like that cable stitch!
Hope everyone is unharmend and things have calmed down.
It’s mock cable so cunningly like cable but even simpler.
I hope so too.
It’s not a mistake, it’s a feature ;) Beautiful yarn with all those colours.
It’s just wrong side up. Isn’t it lovely.
I’m loving those colours, what pretty mitts – both ways up! Hoping no one was harmed in the accident
I like this colorway you had worked with for your mitts.
What a gorgeous design, they look great in that colourful yarn :)
I love the pretty colours in this yarn. Cute mitts.
