It was brought to my attention that the Hemlock Ring Pattern has a mistake — the mistake was in the original pattern written in 1942.

Hemlock Ring

And I know this for a fact because Diane brought a vintage pattern book to knitting group and the pattern was there, mistake and all. When I knitted my Hemlocks, I must have just fixed it as I went along and did not pay much attention.

Endpaper Mitts

I've been a little stalled out on the knitting, lately (yes, even the entrelac): my brain is abubble with plans and ideas, I'm loving a lot of projects recently out, but when it gets right down to it - nothing much seems very appealing to knit right now. You know the feeling? Just a general...blah. Seems just now, I'd rather cook, or read, or curl up with a cup of coffee, without ever-present yarn and needles in-hand.

I think it's just plain old fatigue, really - lately, nothing I've knit has felt like much fun. Enter the Endpaper Mitts. They'll also be eminently practical: the house is kept chilly year-round (can't abide a stuffy room), but stiff fingers aren't an option. A pair is made of two identical, reversible mitts. I will collect this into a printer-friendly PDF for free download eventually, but the HTML version follows below.
