Ignore the ends that haven’t yet been woven in. I could have woven them in during the time limit, if I’d felt like it. Which I didn’t. I need to block it, anyway.
This is a different pattern than the one I originally linked to a couple of weeks ago. This one has more variety, and I’m really happy with the results. It served exactly the purpose I was hoping for: I am now completely comfortable with both knitting and purling. I’m even considering tackling a pair of matching fingerless mitts. (Seamed…not quite ready for working in the round yet.)
