Seriously. I think I have problem understanding some patterns. I must have read the yoke part of it at least 10 times trying to figure out the decreasing (five times out loud in case for some reason that turned a light on in my head. It didn't.). But I was obviously doing it incorrectly. The pattern is supposed to start slanting, but mine was going all... wonky. For the lack of a better word. It just didn't make sense to me when I was supposed to ssk versus when to k2tog. normally that makes sense. But normally you aren't doing it with a knit and purl stitch? At least that's what I think my problem is.
So last night whilst I was bemoaning my wonky sweaterness, I knitted up these gems.
I needed something that I could make in about 15 minutes to restore my confidence in my ability to knit. These were just the ticket! They are totally tiny. I found the pattern while looking for Christmas ornaments to knit. Along with my Christmas boxes for friends, I signed up to do a cookie exchange on a cooking blog I read. We are supposed to send a dozen cookies and an ornament, so I figured I'd knit one. I don't know if these are the ones that I'm going to send, but it was a fun tiny project to restore my sanity. (and I think luckily I have figured out the decreasing. I'll get back to that now...)
Anyways. I don't want to waste words that could be going towards my Nanowrimo word count. So, 'til I have another small craft to blog about, 'ta!
