Busy, Busy, Busy
Yesterday was crazy. Monday is always a little rushed around here, but yesterday I really didn't get a chance to sit down until 8:30 last night. I did a few rounds of knitting on this before I collapsed into bed. What is this? The yarn is the rainbow colored Columbia that I spun in November (I think). It blends from cool colors to warm colors, but there are speckles of lots of other colors within those blends. What I'm making is another pair of fingerless mitts. I just love these things! They are fast to work up, comfortable to wear, and you can drive in them safely because your fingers are out so they can grip the wheel. The other day I tried to drive in mittens (just to mix things up a bit), and before I even grabbed the steering wheel, I had caught my mittens in the hinges of my sunglasses when I went to put them on. Not a good start. I decided that I just do better with my fingers out. So, I wound this yarn in to balls and started them over the weekend. I haven't decided what pattern to put on them, and there is a thumb positioning issue I'm trying to figure out, but I have high hopes for today. I might actually get a little time to knit on them.
Did I mention that I'm done Christmas shopping? And Christmas knitting? Woo Hoo!
