there was nothing remarkable about the gusset decreases except that i used k2tog for all of them since ssk was way beyond my level of comprehension. but in the grand scheme of things. the non-mirrored decreases were the least of my troubles. so i got the gusset decreased, then read, "knit to within 2 inches of the toe". well, as the wise among you may already have guessed, i was already at or beyond 2 inches of the toe...worsted weight yarn and giant needles will do that for you. :) but for good measure i decided to knit a few rounds even since that's obviously what i was supposed to do.
i then worked one of the saddest, pointed toes ever, so i wouldn't have to deal with grafting live stitches at the end. so i managed to spend many many frustrated hours producing what might be the most grossly disproportionate sock of all time...to find out how it was received, though...you'll have to wait for the next installment.
back to the present: i promised pictures of the watermelon mitts. i can't find my camera, so i took one with my computer. you'll have to excuse me looking ridiculous in the background...
and here are the urban rustic gloves i think i mentioned a million years ago
i have a new pair of socks almost done, and i'm in the middle of a mystery KAL for a pair of beaded lace socks...VERY exciting!
