I had initially planned to blog on Friday – the post was going to be called, “Why I Hate Commuting aka National Express are Bar Stewards”. I was angry, needless to say. Let’s say no more. What had no doubt added to my anger over the previous couple of days was running out of yarn for the Evangeline gloves I was making for Caroline.
Managed to get all the cabling done and then worked out that I would run out of yarn approximately 2 rounds before the end of the ribbing and without doing the thumb. So I probably need, about another 10 yards, tops. Super annoying. So I wasn’t able to get these finished to give to her along with her hat on Tuesday. Thankfully she a) loves her hat, and b) has given me her address to post them to later!
I’ve found a lady on Ravelry who has some spare yarn which I am going to buy from her – so I should be able to get these done and also send her some Fetching gloves from the same yarn at the same time – so Caroline can pick and choose the ones she wants to wear.
I’m not desperately happy with how these have turned out… I feel like I’ve made loads of mistakes on them and that they don’t look good. Hopefully a blocking will fix it all.
I’ve been working on other gloves this weekend and have an update to give shortly. But it’s becoming very apparent that I either have issues with my gauge (too small), or that my hands are waaaay too huge for normal patterns. I think it’s a combination of the two…
