Okay , so you have seen me make a zillion of these since before Christmas, and I just couldn’t tire of them, then Lizzi convinced me to write this pattern. You must have noticed the commotion over there in the sidebar with my “Thought For The Day” screaming jubilantly about having written my first knitting pattern ever , and the new advertising of a free download !!!! Well, the odd thing is now I really don’t see as why I should stop. This is a strange and new concept. I was totally blown away that before I even sent the pattern draft of a pdf to Morrie, she had already cast on to test-knit it. We chatted through the afternoon on gmail, as she test-knit away and as I knit up the above pair, while discussing the wording, the nature of ‘ jogless-ness ‘ , helix effect, and other such puzzles of the universe. Then the very next morning early with light just peeking through the sky window of my loft, I photographed these against the newly painted wall, and then I hurriedly slapped it up on Ravelry. In one day friends, the little “Pin-Striped Mitts” got over forty ‘favorite’ hearts on my Ravelry activity , many queued, one project even finished (I see you Morrie!) … and a whole lot of ’em dowloaded ! And boy did that really make my heart melt into a big puddle ! Excuse me folks for being so giddy, it just that for now, it’s all just a really big deal !!!
