half WIP (alternatively, half FO)

sort of like "glass half empty, glass half full", right?


i am so the "glass half empty" girl. not as bad as a debbie downer, or cathy, but still pessimistic in my own right.


this mitten, however, might make me a more optimistic knitter. since technically it's one of two mittens, it's not a finished knit, but it's off the needles, with the ends woven*, and free to be put on, admired, taken off, and repeated as necessary.

amidst what is already a crazy busy week, i'll find some time to cast on the mate. (that's optimism for you!)

*i carried the yarn up the inside of the mitten. there were very few ends to be woven.

It's lovely! And if you need a little instant gratification, put it on and stuff your other hand in a pocket... no one will be the wiser :0)

It's definitely a half-FO! You've created an entire mitten out of string, made some real progress. (Of course, I wish I could be so optimistic about my own works in progress). The mitten is really lovely...those colors are perfect.
