Still Alive. Kinda.
Err ... hi! Yes, it's me, the reluctant blogger. Or something like that. One might wonder why I even bother any pretense of keeping a blog but can I help it if I only like to blog when I have something to show? And heaven only knows, I'm the world's slowest knitter. So I've been knitting instead of blogging so as to have something to show. See the vicious circle I'm trapped in? I suppose I could post a million pictures of Victor but even that's gotta get old after a while. Right?
OK, on with the show ...
Hey, who said that? Who said, "We had to wait all bloody week for a frickin' mitten?" I bet it was that cheeky Monkee Maker. There's no pleasing some people. Anyway, yeah, it's a mitten. "Corazon" from Knitty to be exact. In Rowan's Pure Wool DK. And guess what? IT'S TOO BIG. By like an inch. So if anyone has 8 1/2" long hands, please let me know. I haven't knit the second mitten yet but once that happens, these mitts will be looking for a home. Oh. Here's the back.
I'm waiting until the second mitten is done to do the thumb. I hate doin' thumbs.
Believe it or not, I've bought next to nothing since I started working at the store. I don't know why that is, perhaps something about horses needing shoes and grain. However, today I decided to splurge a bit and bought myself this wonderful book. Hopefully it will teach me how to make mittens to fit ME. It has a ton of beautiful patterns and was well worth buying.
Hmm, I have other stuff to post about but I'm too tired to sit up any longer. Tomorrow. Ha.
