only slightly fickle

untwisted #2, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

Just so you don't think that all the problems I had with the first twisted sock killed my desire to knit the second, you can see that I did, in fact, cast it on.

But in between finishing the first and starting the second I also cast-on this:

reading mitts

And as you can see, bound-off too. (Only the one... it's only been a day and a half after all!) After so many socks as of late, I forgot how fast worsted weight can work up! And compared with the noro, this yarn (Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted) is sooooo soft.

Pattern: Susie's Reading Mitts
Needles: US 7 / 4.5mm
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Mineshaft
For: Leire, one of my roommates here in Spain who will have a birthday in July.
Mods: Used bigger needles and size M instructions for an XL-ish size, omitted the picot edges, using a provisional cast-on, a purl row to hem the bottom, and a stretchy bind-off after the last purl row over the fingers (k2, *sl2 to left needle, knit two previously knit stitches together, k1* until only one remains).
