Deviation the First

I actually finished knitting this handwarmer last Thursday - being on call always means that things like FOtography gets postponed.
Which reminds me, I really need to get The Gambler to take a photo of me in my new sweater; part of the problem is that we often go a few days without both of us being home and awake at the same time. I get up early while he is still sleeping, and he spends a few evenings per week at his fencing club and gets home after I have fallen asleep. Which leads to some weird conversations like: "Hey, when did you shave off your beard?" "Three days ago."

Ends need to be woven in, and I have to blanket stitch the top to keep it from rolling. handwarmer 1 close
There are many wonky stitches, so I am going to try blocking it.

I'm working on Deviation the Second right now - this time I'm holding the background yarn in my left hand. There are a few rows knit with only the background colour, and it seemed very weird to be doing nothing with my right hand except move the needle. One of these days I have to learn how to purl continentally.

I like how the yarn knit up on both the body of the warmer and the thumb gusset. Can't wait to see the pair!

Ooh, I like that yarn! I really like the single red stripe on the cuff.

I love how you explain things... this word is definitely a keeper "FOtography" as are those hand warmers. I love them.
