I finally finished THoMC. It had two more quick jabs for me, the first of which was kind of interesting. I knitted onto the wrong circular while I was on the train and ended up with this loop:
Yes, that is one long circular needle running around one half, across the gap, around the other side of the hat in the opposite direction, and out again. I guess it is like an “S” shape. The second “oops” came when I thought that I was done with the cast-off. I went and snapped the yarn, then realized that I had another 20 stitches to bind off. Sigh.
I am planning to work on some wrist warmers or fingerless mitts next. I’ve got an introductory sock book on the way from Amazon, so socks are inevitable (knock wood).
