I finally mustered sufficient backbone to sew in the ends on these mitts. They were finished this evening and have already been deployed. Appropriate appreciation was shown.
Opal socks FO.
I managed to get a few unwanted lines in these. They’ll probably ease out when I wash them. Pretty socks. For me.
“Knitting this yarn put me in another time and place, but one that I can’t quite identify. The colour of the yarn is subtle, almost dusky in a way. The gloss is reminiscent of … what… Rayon? It’s almost indefinable, but there is a whiff of Granny’s dressing table about it. Something in my experience, long ago. A memory so distant that I can’t reach out far enough to grab it. Something 1930’s or 1940’s about it. Something that was old, even when I was very young.”
A simple lace scarf…Named for RenÃ© Lalique… Cast on: Dec 26, 2008… Cast off: 1st January 2009. 2009’s first FO!

…meet the Displacement Mitts (still a few ends to tidy up) and…The Blind Panic Hat… or maybe the Double Displacement Hat…

I snapped my Yarn Yard club yarn, I snapped some FOs – eight of them – and a couple of cats as well…
