Not George

Since I plan to knit the second Deviation from Standard Handwarmer with the yarns reversed in dominance, I decided to flip the order of the yarns in the corrugated ribbing - knitting with the background yarn and purling with the contrast yarns.

Here's the result:



I hate to say it, but this ribbing is no George. Ruprecht might be more like it.

Even though I had expected the two handwarmers to be different, I had to frog this.
I don't think I could take the sibling rivalry: "Mom always liked you best!" "Can you blame her?"

I know, I know, other than the spots when I accidentally knit with the contrast instead of the background, that ribbing looks perfectly fine, and has it's own subtle charm. I am a shallow knitter, dazzled by a column of stitches. Do you love all your handknits equally? Let those without sin cast off the first row the first stone.

Sometimes a knitter's gotta do what a knitter's gotta do.

Love my handknits equally?! Um, no. And I'm not afraid to admit it!

LOL love it.

And I take the 5th

Yeah, sometimes it's okay to play favorites. It is interesting to see it this way though. Very different.
