An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Testing an Idea
I'm working on Reservoir Mitts by Allyson Dykhuizen, published by Interweave Press. I really like how the back of the mitt in entrelac has turned out. But I don't like the rest of the pattern. To me it looks bitty and 'stuck together'. I thought of an entirely different way to knit the palm.
Hmmm. The principle is fine, but I've put the thumb gusset too low down. I've unraveled that first attempt and started again, noting where the thumb gusset should start, and making a few other minor adjustments. The work in progress looks a bit strange, but I hope it will work.
