Knitting News


I have the same two projects on my needles - my son in law's sweater and a pair of socks.  Naturally, I forgot to photo the progress of those so you'll have to use your imagination.  I received for Christmas from my husband a mitten kit from Tanis Fiber Arts because Steph mentioned the kit.

Ah, knitters who enable knitters, what could be better than that?

a lovely unexpected gift from a dear friend, thank you!
 I wanted to cast on the mitten kit on Christmas day but sadly, both of my size 2 dpns are currently being used.  One pair for a pair of socks and another pair are whisking up a cozy for a Starbucks thermos.  Photos of the cozy thermos will hopefully be on Friday, if I remember.

In my defense, my house is full of family and I'm still in the throes of cooking, cleaning, planning menus, kitten care, Frodo loving,  etc...  I haven't had much time to knit or remember to take photographs.

all ready for me!

  5. All the things you are doing are more important than photographing knits. We'll be here when the pix are ready.

  7. Lovely yarn colors, very inviting for a knit! You also reminded me I have some fizzy gummy coke bottles in my file cabinet in the cube. May need to tap into that secret stash later. It is after all a long quiet week. Gotta have fuel. Enjoy your family and your time together. The knits will always be there :)

  14. Yarn matching gummy fish?? Can't wait to find out what those really are. Other knitters make the most wonderfully dangerous friends, don't they? :) Can't wait to see what mitten pattern you use. The colors are awesome!
