Every once in a while a pattern catches my eye and calls out for immediate attention. Usually I'm strong and file it away in my queue. My rule is if it sits in the queue for a while and I'm still really smitten, then I can start it. I can't tell you how many times I've looked at a pattern in my queue and commented, "What was I thinking?"
I guess rules were meant to be broken because yesterday I fell hard for Kaerlig. Someone commented that these mitts had an intriguing thumb gusset, so of course I had to investigate. After that it was all over.
I went on a little knitting bender late last night. This morning I'm looking at the cuff and debating if I want to make it a little deeper. The cuff is pretty standard, but after that things get interesting. I can hardly wait.
