I am toast… my brains are fried. I have been working all day at my favorite tea shop to finish Tristan’s scarf and fingerless gloves. Writing out the pattern, testknitting three different sizes, calculating this and that, taking pictures for the step by step picture tutorial. And finally finishing the scarf and gloves in order to ship it today.
Then this guy with hee-huge hands came into the teashop… “excuse me”, I asked him timidly. “Excuse me, would you please do me a favor?”
After explaining to him that I need his hand to test out the Large size I knitted up, he gladly helped me out.
“Too tight at the top”, was his response. “But other than that, it fits me just perfectly.”
I started to bug every guy that came into the teashop. Guys with small hands, medium hands and large hands were all made model victim and sure enough, all said the same thing: “Fits perfectly… but too tight at the top”.
Dang it. I thought I had it figured out. Too tight at the top… I did my bind off very loosely!
I started to scout the net for stretchy bind offs… but man, my brains are fried and I am tired…
So if you have a minute, dear reader, and if you know of a good stretchy bind off tutorial somewhere on the net, could you please help out this knitter and leave me a comment notifying me about it?
I am calling it a day… time to head on home and get dinner ready.
Thank you for reading and untill the next entry.
