The musician called me as soon as he got his mail. He was thrilled with the prototype fingerless mitts (even though, he said, the picture on my blog doesn’t come close to doing them justice), and called them my tour de force. (Okay, that’s very flattering, though I don’t really consider the mittens my tour de force. 🙂 ) He also likes the fiber (Dale’s Baby Ull), and wants to commission me to knit his very first wool sweater. (I have assured him that a wool sweater will keep him far warmer than a cotton sweatshirt.) He’s really taken by cables, so at our next meeting I will show him some ideas and see what strikes his fancy. I look forward to his reaction when I show him how “fancy” cables can get!
