I have had the sense this fall that I haven't been doing much knitting. But maybe it's because I've been knitting things that were not on my knitting to do lists.
The wrist band is knit straight, and then you pick up stitches along the edge and knit the hand. This design (like so many of Ysolda's, really) has a fantastic combination of simplicity and sweet little details.
I especially loved how the buttons along the wrist section curve a bit, so they aren't in a straight line.
The other little knit that I can share is a iPod cover I improvised for my iPod. I promised that I would make it a new cover if it started working again, and as it did, I kept my word.
The button is a glowy green that matches this super special yarn (what's it called, Old Books or something?) perfectly. Yay super special, happy yarn!
