There Aren’t Many “Hard Nos” in Knitting…

But one of them is definitely “Matched items should be the same length, not a full inch shorter than the other.”

I don’t know how it happened, either. Luckily I noticed before I went to all the trouble of weaving in the ends, but only barely. Back to the drawing board on that one!

  • Glad the old man’s still got the gumption to get in the way.

  • I hate when that happens.

    Just when you get cocky about having memorized a pattern…

  • I was halfway through a second Selbuvotter glove when I realized I’d left out one of the patterns on the cuff. Frogging it would have made me cry, so I just cast on another glove and pretended the second one never happened. (Someday I’ll finish the bad glove and knit another one to make a pair. Someday.)

    Really? Oh, dear. I’d better see if I can find the leftover yarn and get started on some glove- and sock cuffs …

    Nah: too much work.

    I’ll just keep telling people they’re “fraternal,” not identical. Mom LOVED that joke.
