Thanks for all the yoga bag love — you guys are all so very kind and sweet! I’ve had fun reading your comments this last week — I’ve been so lazy, it’s been hard to even get back here and post! (And it may be Easter before Santa and his sleigh up there disappear — ouch!) I have been knitting like a madwoman though. After dinner each night I settle down with a sweater I started a few weeks ago. And then the next day at lunch I rip out what I knitted the night before. Ouch again! I’m getting really good at picking up stitches but I hope I don’t wear the yarn out before I’m done. I’m slowly making progress, but with work during the day, it hasn’t left much time for anything else.
Anyway, here’s a look at a much easier knitting project. This is the last of my Christmas gift making. I made a couple of pairs of these pretty little Welted Fingerless Gloves from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.
I first saw them on my almost-local buddy Anne’s blog. Anne has made many of these little mitts and she describes them as her go-to gift, which I think is a great choice. They’re quick and easy and fun. Thanks for a great suggestion Anne! (Btw, this is the little project I was working on when I posted about the Yarn Harlot’s visit to our little burg. I showed a picture of just the cuff in progress and Bonnie knew right away what they were — good eye Bonnie!)
So, if you’re in North America I hope you’re staying warm. (And if you’re burning up in Australia, I sure wish I could send you some snow!) We’re having another coooold week here and I love it. I love winter when we can hunker down and work on projects. I know some of you don’t like it though, but take heart. The days are slowly getting longer. Here’s a little pic from the archives to remind you that this deep freeze won’t last forever.
Because, you know the routine …
Have a good week!
