Despite my very best intentions, my wicked case of knitting ADD has struck again. Half way through the sleeves on my Tea Leaves cardi, I suddenly find myself knitting a pair of fingerless gloves. Funny how that happens. Like, every time. But, I tell myself, we have been taking a lot of short road trips to various places along the Eastern Seaboard these last couple of weeks, and no one wants to sit on a sandy beach with a mostly finished sweater draped across their lap. So, a tiny project is just the thing.
And, I realize, that tiny projects really are my favorite. I actually like to knit adult sized socks out of fingering weight yarn suspended on super tiny needles. I also like to knit many mittens, one after another. Cuffs, thumb gussets and all. I feel that this bit of personal insight is likely to serve me well. It is, afterall, considerably less expensive to knit a pair of mittens than it is an adult sized sweater. So maybe after these fingerless gloves and Z.'s sweater (and yes, finishing my Tea Leaves- pinky swear), I will knit mittens for the world.
Yarning along with Ginny today.
