Jogging so Fast

I’ve been chugging away on my Fightin’ Words mitts as best as I can. I added a round and a half last night while watching Full Frontal (Late night comedy on TBS hosted by Samantha Bee- not a porno), trying to keep my gauge from tightening in frustration too much.

Gauge is still a bogeyman for this project, a silent spectator lurking in the background gnashing its pointy teeth. It whispers things like ‘they won’t fit’ and ‘all this work for nothing’. Fun stuff like that.  I’m just trying to cross my fingers as I knit, hoping that they’ll fit. Maybe that’s why my progress is so slow.

I’ve also been working on my Achilles’ Heal Socks while in class. I have a night class again this semester, along with a few other classes that don’t require much note taking, I have been almost flying through my first one. Jogging at least.

Seen here I’ve just about finished the top of the foot. Wild right? I’ll do a post explaining their construction next time. I’ve been loving the way the stitch pattern plays with the subtle gradation of the yarn.

It’s fun to watch it swing from more purple to more blue and back. The shifts are subtle but I’m easily amused. 😉
