You lose some.
I know that the Knitting Olympics aren't over yet. I have to be realistic though. The fact of the matter is, I won't be a gold medalist.
Am I upset?
Not in the least. It gave me the opportunity to dive in and start a project that I kept pushing to the back-burner. I also learned a valuable lesson.
I hate knitting gloves.
Will this deter me from knitting more gloves?
Not in the least.
Hey, I never said I was smart.
The progress is going smoothly, regardless of my whining.
Two more fingers to knit. This is the reason I do not like to knit gloves. It's fine once an inch or so has been knitted up from the base of the finger. Until you hit that point, it seems that everything is fighting with, well, everything. It's just a drag.
See that wee triangular shape between the fingers in this next pic? That's a little gusset between each finger. Very nice.
I hope to finish off the fingers and start the next glove this weekend. All is not lost for gold, true, but I am not going to push myself over the edge to achieve it.
Keep On Knitting...
