Knitting Obscure Things
I belong to a group on Ravelry who knit obscure patterns....These Swirling Gauntlets were only marginally obscure but I wanted to make them anyway. I used a stash yarn in 100% wool. I cast them on DPNs first and got clear up to row 13 of the cables when I let about 8 stitches get off the needle and couldn't get them back...bad feeling! Ripped it all out and started again knitting flat. That went quickly until I noticed again around row 13 that I had crossed a cable the wrong way around row 6....hmmmmmmm......should I cave in and give up? NO!!!!!!!! I ripped back to the ribbing and started yet again...this time I conquered and behold....my Swirling Gauntlet Mitts. I kinda like them. I'll be doing the Tantric Puzzle Top next.
