Knitting Away

I have one more sleeve to do on the sweater shrug. I cast on last night, then fell asleep while reading through a new cookbook.

I started on the Wine and Roses Mitts from Interweave Knits, and was trucking right along, but I really don't like how loose the fabric is. I knit gloves and mittens more tightly like socks. I think they wear better, and it also makes up (on me) for how large the women's medium is. The cuffs looked loose on the skinny model, that should have been a clue to me. I am using my one skein of midnight blue Glimmer yarn. It looks beautiful. However, I was using size 2s, and getting gauge, but need to go down to 1s (maybe 0s, because of just how loose it would be), but I only have one set of size 1 dpns, and they are currently in a sock. So, I need to either finish that sock right away (I should anyway, I started the first one almost two years ago!), or buy another set of size 1s. I'll keep you updated.

It sounds like it will turn out beautifully - I hope you will post a picture!
