And All She Had ...
... after a full month of not blogging ... were a pair of fingerless mitts. How truly sad is that?
Pretty mitts but still, just a pair. These are the Maine Morning Mitts which are the most basic pair of fingerless mitts you could ever want. In fact, if I'd been more helpful, I would have posted the link about a month ago in time for people to bang out half a dozen pair before Christmas. Sigh.
Malabrigo in the colorway "Little Lovely" on size umm 6's? Why I'm drawing a blank on the needle size is a bit of a mystery since I've knit a second pair in Cloud 9 and a solitary mitt in Manos. I've also finished a pair of Fetching from Knitty, pictures sometime in the near future. It's basically all mitts, all the time at Chez Insanity.
In other news, I'm still working two jobs although I doubt you could qualify working at a yarn store as "a job." It's more like non-stop hysteria since we have the greatest bunch of customers in the world. Our store is more like a hang out or a clubhouse than a business establishment. It's sort of like "Cheers" without the alcohol.
Am I ready for Christmas? Well given that I have not a single soul to buy presents for, I haven't had to do much. I'm not so sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing. So I may go all out and spoil the kitties. Catnip toys, new beds, woohoo, the party never stops. Perhaps I'll knit Andy an argyle vest. Really, the options are endless.
