Plus and Minus

A thing I like about having very small wrists and forearms: partners being able to encircle both of my wrists with one of their hands.

A thing I hate about having very small wrists and forearms: spending the day knitting fingerless mitts and having them be way too loose on me. :(

I'm just going to have to either only knit unpatterned fingerless mitts (with lighter yarn and smaller needles than called for) for myself or sit down with a knitting guru and figure out how to adjust patterns so they fit me but don't screw up the lace pattern. Nyargh. (Yes, I am totally checking gauge and getting gauge, but that gauge is for people who are normal human sizes.)

The really annoying thing is that I have knit one mitt, and so I do have to go ahead and knit the other one even though I know I cannot has. Grr. Perhaps I'll auction them off for Blogathon.

Lo, I pout mightily.
