I'm really missing the opportunity to go to my book shelves and look up something or other in my knitting books. I used to have them in a certain order, so that I would go there, grab the book I wanted, and browse through it.
Good thing, there are many free patterns to find. Like these lovely mittens called Della mitts. They are fingerless mitts, but I made them into full mittens. More useful I think. I sent them to my mom with these socks. She already wore the socks, and liked them, which makes me very happy.
specifics: Della mitts by Holly Terrel
yarn: Wandering Cat Yarns Alley Cat, colorway: Baby, sw merino/nylon
This was the pair of mittens, where I had to knit a third mitten, since Denny ate one, while they were laid out drying. I still had some yarn left over after finishing the third mitten.
I haven't knit a whole lot lately. I finished another pair of mittens, and on some evenings I picked up my "Surrounded" lap blanket. It will get done eventually, as long as I keep knitting on it. But other than that, I miss my stash. I want to do so many things, but all my yarn is boxed up somewhere. I left out some yarn, but only sock yarn. I thought I'd knit socks during the renos, but lost my sock mojo. It's really frustrating, to know it's all THERE, but I can't get to it. Oh well. I'll suck it up!
Meantime, I'm working on setting up an online shop, so I can sell some of my handspun yarn occasionally. I really would rather just create, and leave the "business" side of this to somebody else though! And that's what I've done the last weeks. A lot of spinning. There's enough fiber to keep me busy, and it never gets boring, with the different kinds of fiber, and colors.
So, as I said before, tomorrow will be a little hard on us, but we most likely will survive. Talk to you in a couple of days ...
