|This is precisely what I look like lately.|
At which point the horrifying thought occurred to me that I may have blithely knitted 4 left-handed mitts. Meaning, my Christmas gift-giving plans will have been shot to heck, because - while I may have time to knit 4 more pairs of handwarmers and 3 more scarves - an extra pair of handwarmers will push me right past any possibility of finishing in time. And the stupidest part of this whole story is that I am scared to look. Obviously, I need to get together the 4 fingerless mitts I have already completed and make sure that I have 2 rights and 2 lefts. But I can't. I don't want to know.

Have a glass of wine and then look. You can handle it.ReplyDelete
No. No, I can't. I'm a knitter and it is almost December. We are crazy human beings. Like werewolves at the full moon.Delete
Could Susie look for you?Delete
This is excellent advice.Delete
Ignore or avoidance works for me. I use it particularly come tax season!ReplyDelete
I'm afraid to open the Excel document where I have Christmas ideas (sorely lacking) and the list of the entire family & friends for whom I make/buy/give gifts.ReplyDelete
It's still November. La-la-la-la-la!
Cowls. Cowls are in this year. My knitting time says thank goodness for that. Good luck with those mitts!ReplyDelete
I would have checked for you at the sewing circle today.ReplyDelete
Does a fingerless mitt have to have a handedness? What if you turn it upside down? Or just rotate the fabric a bit and reblock it? But if those don't work...I feel your pain.
There is always something called the dollar store…Target…or your big time Etsy….it will all work out..lol…ReplyDelete
Can you maybe, um, turn a left handed one inside out?ReplyDelete
I want to learn how to knit, but I am all thumbs.ReplyDelete
How 'bout you tell the recipients of the left-handed mitt you give each person that wearing only one is back in fashion?ReplyDelete
By the way, I love "Thanksalatke"!
I'd blame the people you give these to for not having two left hands.ReplyDelete
Honest mistake, though.
"Susie, of all people…" is the best line of this post. :)ReplyDelete
And if I would have read this first the next post would have made more sense.ReplyDelete
