      Monterey County Fair’s featured item is hand covers, so I bought 2 patterns. One simple and one complex. Starting with the simple one.
      After casting on 65 GT using size 2, frog, 1.5, frog I settled on size 1 needles.
      4/29 finished 3 cm 1x1 rib on right mitten
      5/7 one down, one to go, will do the thumbs last.
      5/13/22 off needles last night, but I had to do a bit of duplicate stitch on the bottom wave. I had gotten off stitch count on the bottom wave. I wish I had noticed earlier.

      Cast on 60 GT
      12 rows or 3 cm 1x1 ribs
      5/15 modifying the thumb to an afterthought. Hopefully that will make it a smoother join. I did this technique when I made my little elephant. Having a small issue with the white yarn, even though all the yarn is fingering weight, the white is slightly thinner, so when I am changing from side to side, the white stitch is wonky. Hopefully that will block out.
      6/12 I finished these a couple of weeks ago, but I ordered new yarn for the yellow area. In real life there is not enough contrast between the yellow and the white, though it photographed ok. So I am going to rip out the yellow and redo it in turmeric. I suck at duplicate stitch!

    • Making some really good progress on my hitofude lace cardigan. I think this has been one of my favorite projects to date. It's an inexpensive pattern and an ingenious design. I can't remember the direct translation for hitofude from Japanese to English, but it essentially meant one line, and this cardigan is knit without cutting the yarn. I'd highly recommend it if you like fingering weight, lace knitting.

      Softest things EVER. Only took less than an hour to do one. Have enough yarn left for about 1 more booty. MUST do the YO elastic BO. (yo, knit 1, BO. yo, k1, bo yo then bo st on right needle.) Might want to do a draw string somehow. Not sure if they’ll stay on babe. Probably not, but what sock/shoe does?
