I've just realised I cast on fewer stitches than I was meant to in the gloves I'm making. They're meant to have 6 columns around, and they alternate hearts and diamonds on the left glove and spades and clubs on the right. I've got 5 columns around, which means that two columns together are the same. I think it will be OK to make those be the two nearest the thumb, as the thumb breaks it up a bit, and they''re a good fit at the moment.

In other knitting news, I signed up to a Mystery Knit Along, a shawl based on Fool's Assassin by Robin Hobb, and the group that's in is pretty dogsled enthusiastic (they do a knit along for Yukon Quest and Iditarod as well, and I plan to do the knit for the Iditarod. Basically the pattern will be released at the start of the race, and the group tries to finish before the Iditarod is over. This has lead to me also paying attention to dog sled racing, which turns out to be quite exciting even over radio or watching online trackers.So if you see me and I'm talking about the weather in Alaska, or something equally random seeming, that's why.

Reading: Fool's Assassin by Robin Hobb :) and Anubis Gates by Tim Powers. Both compelling in different ways
Playing: date night! Pandemic Legacy
Eating: meatballs for the beef eaters and beans for the bean eaters, in tomato and courgette sauce and topped with grilled aubergines, very tasty, would eat again.
