First FO of 2008


Mandy's Mittens...Patons Classic Wool Merino in the Rosewood colorway. I knit these in the Warmest Mittens pattern, but started with 32 stitches for the cuff and increased to 36 for the hand on US6 dpn's. She loves them.



Two of Mandy's friends did a wonderful thing for her this Christmas...and as a thank you I'm knitting them some mitts. I've finished one pair already, and I'm on the second mitt of the second pair. Ally's mitts are purple and Hannah's are fuschia. Both are knit in Cascade 220 Superwash. Ally and Hannah came over to our house over the Christmas break and I taught them to knit too. We sat up until 3am watching old movies and knitting...I was so tired but it was fun! Two more added to the "knitters" list.
I've come up with a plan...I'm going to finish some of the socks I have going and then I'm going to get to work on C.J.'s sweater. Keep after me about it...Please
That's it for now...More later.

A little Monica bird told us you were starting a new job--so here wishing you the best and hoping it doesn't take away your knitting time too much!
