Now, my gloves match

Reknitted glove(s)
Reknitted glove(s)

Finished reknitting my glove last night. It only took three hours of TV to do the knitting and then another 40 minutes to do the bindoff. I knitted until my hand ached and more. I wanted my glove back.

I’m surprised by how much extra yarn I ended up with, but it makes sense. Since I was doing more decreases, each one multiplied by every row of knitting afterward meant more yarn that wouldn’t get reknitted.

And with that, my burning need to knit seems to have passed. I’m free to read again!

Although, now that I think of it, a pair of mittens would be nice.

  1. Come back to California. Little need for wearing gloves here. I wear mine only when riding my motorcycle; they’re heavy leather, not knitted. Fourth pair of gloves, fourth motorcycle too. Looking to replace both soon though. Emu wants a 2008 Suzuki V-Strom 650 in yellow, with all the cool bolt-ons.

    Now I’m either supposed to set this to music, or relate it to science fiction.
    Music: “Hold me” by Fleetwood Mac.
    Science fiction: I’m drawing a blank here. The closest thing I’m getting is the story that Garp was going to write in the movie “The World According to Garp.” I admit I’ve never read the book, and seen the movie only once many years ago.

  2. I should ‘a’ thought of that! It’s been so long since I read “Waldo” that… well, Heinlein was still alive then.

    Digressing, it appears that all the science fiction authors who were so entertaining when I was a teenager have all passed away. Robert A. Heinlein, Andre Norton, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke. Gone, gone, gone, whoa yeah.

    Here’s a question for you: Who’s writing for the teenagers of today? Or do today’s teens read gritty adult fare?

    By the time you see this, it’ll be Sunday, garden day for the blog. I’ve been surreptitiously planting nasturtium seeds. We’ll see if they come up. I should probably thin out the wild mustard greens. They’re not growing as well as they did last year… I wonder if they require crop rotation. LOL. Almost time to plant tomatoes.
