Around and Around

(To set the tone, click here for my project soundtrack.)

I've got a song
I ain't got no melody

Last month, I decided to jumpstart my knitting (which had sort of . . . faded . . . of late) by adding some fresh tricks to my repertoire.  I joined A Year of Techniques (because there's always something new to learn) and decided to bring some (ahem. . . ) balance to my knitting.

While I don't plan to try each new technique on a monthly basis (my life is just too full for that - and I don't need any pressure to keep up), I do think I'll really enjoy learning some new tricks.

I've got a dance
I ain't got no steps, no

I really enjoyed learning the helical stripes technique.  Simple.  Fun.  And it made so much sense once I got going that I can't believe I never figured it out for myself.  (But I didn't.)

My mitts are very "fraternal," although I did force things a bit to get the cuffs to be all in "dark" shades.

Will it go round in circles
Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky

I was happy to switch out these mitts for my garden gloves yesterday, and pack them away for another season.
