Hey, hey! I’m back for my second day!
I decided to pull WIPs based on which one is the closest (physically) to me. Today’s winner is this pair of rainbow Frankenfingers. They’re being made out of Knit Picks Felici and I’m knitting them TAAT on magic loop.
It felt to me like this pattern was super popular a decade ago and then it suddenly disappeared. Now that I’m looking at the Ravelry page, there really aren’t that many projects on there. It must’ve just been popular in my very small circle, and I imagined that it was popular everywhere.
I feel like what makes the Frankenfingers extra cute is that each finger is done with a different color of yarn. It requires a bit of yarn waste, but the stripes aren’t that big in Felici anyways and it’s well worth it. You can always use the scraps for stitch markers or whatever. (Is that just me?)
Since the entire pattern is ribbed, plus it’s long, and I’m making them TAAT, this will take me forever to finish. I tend to bring them when my 13yo is performing in shows, because I don’t have to look down and it helps to have other entertainment while knitting these. People always comment on the yarn, but they probably think, “Wow, this lady takes a long time to finish a project”, since I’ve literally been bringing them to shows for more than a year, lol.
For today’s run entertainment, I decided to listen to Buddha’s Brain. It was the book club pick a few months ago for my Yoga Teacher Training and it sounded interesting. I find meditation to be particularly helpful and I am a science nerd, so I’m hoping it’ll be a fun read. I only ran for 45 minutes this morning, so I think I listened to a preface, the intro and then chapter 1…. so it’s still building. Hopefully it’ll get going soon and I’ll have more info to share.
