I broke down and bought space from Google, so I can bring you photos.
Toe socks are finished!
The other project I was working on when I mentioned I was thinking about other projects were these fingerless gloves.
These are from The Knitter's Curiosity Cabinet. They're quite pretty, and the ribbing on the palm makes them fit better than many fingerless gloves.
I did three repeats before starting the increases for the thumb.
At least, I did three repeats on the first mitt. On the second one, I did four.
I didn't realize that until I was completely finished with the second mitt.
I now had two options: Rip out one mitt completely and reknit or knit two more mitts to have two matching pairs.
I went with option two.
Rosa rubiginosa and Rosa rubiginosa, Jr.
This is not a bad thing. I have two friends for whom I wanted to make fingerless gloves. I just didn't anticipate them being the same. By the time I finished the fourth, I was ready to be done with this pattern and the yarn for awhile. Don't get me wrong: Both are lovely. I was just ready for something else.
I'm ready to knit something that doesn't come in pairs.
