productive train knitting

This morning I spent a very productive train ride knitting. Here’s where I was at the start of the commute:


Mitts For Me, in Malabrigo’s Merino Worsted, color: Pearl Ten (it is purpler than the picture)

And here’s where I was at the end:

mitts unraveled

Turns out I can’t measure my own hand. Even tho the size I thought I was (8.5″) matched up with “Mens Medium” in the pattern, I carried on knitting, figuring that size will out. I remeasured my hand this morning (7.5″). Yup, I’m a standard Ladies Medium. And while I hate ripping out knitting, and I especially hate frogging, my proposed fixes (decreasing about 6 stitches in the next row, or lightly felting it) seemed silly now that I knew I was in error, and not the pattern. Plus, it’s not like I got very far. *sigh*

what i was



You guessed it, I was a Hello Kitty Disco Queen for hallowe’en.




Ok, maybe you didn’t guess it. But that’s what I was, and I’m sticking to it.




And for those of you who are wondering where my cat ears are, the “hello kitty” is more “character that could fit in the world of Sanrio,” but I figure more people have heard of hello kitty than sanrio. I was purple and pink, what can I say.
