I've been knitting a bit. (No one should be surprised.) Before my yarn came yesterday, I knit up a wee little swatch. I rather like it ... an Irish Lace Edging pattern from Heirloom Knitting. I think it will grow up to be a double-bordered scarf. The question I am wondering about is whether or not I should lengthen the repeats by adding another row of holes around the large hole. I think so ... which means my entry into redesigning lace may be at hand. Oh dearie, oh my.
But that is not the opinion I need. No, I am humbly soliciting mitten opinions. You see below a mitten. Would it look better if the natural (gray) and moss (brown) were switched in the cuff? How about in the mitten body?
Here's a comparison of what the bottom three bands look like, switched. And, as an aside, I am delighted to note that after FOUR tries of rendering a M1, I have finally achieved one that gives the proper results. Who'd've thunk a M1 could be so tricky?
