Not only have I been making toast to eat, but I have also been making Toast to wear. The other day, I was telling my friend Jill that I really wanted to knit this pattern, called Toast, for some fingerless gloves (or what may be more appropriately called arm-warmers). And she said something to the effect of, "Tara. Just knit them already. You've been saying that since I met you." Which is apparently what I needed to hear because, guess what! I did! Well, I knit half of them, anyway. I still have to do the other one. But I love this one so much that I am motivated to get the other one done. Sometimes, there is an upside to getting sick and sitting on the couch for a couple days. (Please ignore the hanging out ends that haven't been woven in yet).
And then, I am going to knit another pair in a neutral color, like grey, and make them a little longer. I kept these ones shorter because I was afraid I might run out of yarn before I finish the second one.
And then, I am going to get back to the cardigan I started...um...I can't remember when I started it. It was a long time ago. I have been procrastinating. It's a LOT of knitting, and kind of complicated. Not easy instant gratification like Toast. But I know that
Right now, though, I am going downstairs to test something I saw on Pinterest. Results coming soon, so stay tuned!
PS. I learned two things with this project. Double pointed needles aren't so bad, and it's hard to take a good picture of your own arm.
