I finished and moved to round 3. The afterthought heel does not fit me well. I had to add extra rows to get some heel depth and they still don't fit. But it fun to learn these new techniques and see what works for me and what doesn't. I can always reknit it and redo the heel to a flap and gusset. Since yesterday was April 1, April Fools, there were lots of little jokes on Ravelry. I had a Cat in the Hat hat on my Ravatar. There were the Emperor's Fingerless Gloves made from Rumplestilkin's Yarn. Then there was a contest looking for the sexiest knitter, the one who knits the sexiest, not looks the sexiest and knits. The in Sock Madness, Round 3 was announced. The supply list had 1,000 yds of lace weight in 5 different colors, a true indigo dye vat made with urine of pre-pubscent boys, 4 cabana/ kilt boys, 16 cable needles and much more. It fooled me at first until I started reading. Then I started laughing.
I am trying to finish at least one glove to show my massage therapist to see if it works for her. If it does, I may actually publish it on Rav. There isn't anything like it there. There are some elements but not all of them put together like I have on this glove. If I do, it will be my first published pattern. I've never liked mittens, and gloves make it hard to get change out, especially while driving. If you can flip the tops of your thumb and the the next two fingers, it could be done easily. She wants to be able to play her flute and still keep her hands warm. We will see it I figured it out and not have the tips get lost or in the way.
It's getting late and I think I will sign off. Nighty-night all.
