A thrilling compliment for meeeeee!

rupert graves game is on
emmagrant01 just posted the fifth of six chapters on her latest Sherlock fic, "Inexplicable."  And in her author's note for beta acknowledgment, she wrote, "Huge thanks as always to drinkingcocoa, who always keeps me right."  Have I mentioned lately how much I love being a beta???

Here are the mittens I'm improvising while I beta this fic.  I mess up frequently when the smut gets particularly engaging.  I usually catch the errors, but not always, like the top row of blue-green motifs on the right mitten-in-progress, which was supposed to be another row of diamonds instead of little Christmas trees.  :-)  There's another spot on the reverse of that mitten where I missed the pattern entirely on one stitch and just kept going with white.  I like being able to read how profoundly I got immersed in the story by tracking the errors I didn't catch in time.  (No, I'm not frogging the record.  I like this manner of record-keeping.)

As someone who only loom knits and is baffled by these adorable, intricate mitts, I am inclined to be charitable about any perceived mistakes. They are just gorgeous. I would love to think one day I could learn to do this, but until then, I do enjoy watching a master at work.
