Now I'm finishing mittens for George's wife, Beth. As I knitted yesterday, I found that I could not put the first one down. It was like the colors and charts were addicting -"just one more round....just one more round...." and pushing me to finish.
I'll cast-on the second mitten today and try to finish before school and life smack me in the face on Monday. ACK. Life surely does get in the way of doing what I really enjoy.
Oh - and I also finished these:
-mitts for Caroline - but guess what? They were not photographed either! I'll get them before she goes back to college, I guess! What a lousy photojournalist I am!
I've also been spinning a bit. Here are the results of my first, second, and third attempts at spinning/plying.
1. Outlandish purple/pink merino #1 from Stoney Mountain Fibers
2. Cotswold from Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton
3. Merino/bamboo from Julie at Flawful Fibers
I am currently trying to spin some BFL. Merry is being a little finicky though - must be the cold weather - or the silly bow!
Next on my knitting list:
- a Calorimetry for Alex's GF
- a pair of mitts for Lisa
- a pair of mittens for Kim
- and my eternal WIPs.
