Why, yes it could!
Why the hell didn't I think of using Band-Aids a couple of weeks ago? [This is being said in my deep voiced, snarky tone that I occasionally use...okay, I use it alot] I was so fed up trying to knit with my cotton glove on because I kept knitting in the tip of my left index finger that I decided to actually use my two, perhaps even three brain cells before I came up with a better solution. The Band-Aids are great because they're flexible, cover the parts of my fingers that are easily irritated and most importantly, they don't get in the way.
Amazing what a desperate woman will do to get knitting again.
So, this is some of the progress I've made since Saturday. Please excuse the awful pics...
A Step Above Socks
Yarn: Paton's Kroy, Candy Kisses
Pattern: Knitter's 75 Summer 2004
Designer: Kathleen Power Johnson
Comment: I didn't enjoy making these socks, but that is because I've learned that I don't enjoy knitting entrelac, so let it be known that this technique is a personal preference. I do however, love how they fit and would sacrifice myself to make another pair in the not so near future. [g]
Mariah the 2nd
She is in yoke formation! So far, so good...it's a wait and see situation right now. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that I placed the pockets in a good position, cause I ain't doing this again!
Oh my, what have we here...a sleeve? Why, yes indeedy. I had been working on this sucker for a week and a half...maybe two weeks. I started on it as soon as I saw new stock for highland wool in this colour go up at elann. I wanted to make sure I had enough, as I thought I was cutting it pretty close, but I was worried for nothing.
I also completed the neckline. I decided to try my hand at using the tubular cast off, mainly because I didn't want a raw looking edge that a knitted cast off would have given me and it gave me the opportunity to finally try it for the first time. That and I didn't think I would have been able to squeeze my head through the opening had I used a knitted cast off. [g]
Yes, I tried it on and yes, my head fits through the opening.
Last, but not least, I received the pullover pattern from Mary Maxim I requested for the Sirdar Yo-Yo yarn in the mail today. This will probably be my next project when I've completed the above projects. I just wonder how many more boxes of Band-Aids I'll use?
Keep On Knitting...
