Conversation between Jennifer (the Socksgiving Angel) and I after yesterday's post:
Jennifer: "How could you knit mittens and not be able to knit socks?"
Me: "I don't know that I can knit mittens. I thought I'd give it a whizz."
Jennifer: "Ahhh, the truth, I was wondering about you and that thumb gusset."
Me (silently): "Uh-oh..."
And why would I pick the most complicated pattern I could find for my first mitten? Because I
'm a nut case like to challenge myself.
(Did I mention that I've never tried stranded knitting before either?)
