Although I haven't been posting much here, I haven't been passively eyeing the doings of the household from my perch, like Soul (although he doesn't seem to be eyeing much in this image):
I've been sitting knitting on these fingerless mitts designed by Lynn Vogel. I can't tell you how impassioned I was to GET THEM DONE. Don't you hate to find a bag of half knitted something or other in the bowels of some tote bag or other in the back of the closet? I know I have several. And oddly, all in shades of green . . .
L graciously modeled these for me, as my poor hands are far too stubby to show them off in these. B helped me greatly by picking up four stitches for the thumb (I had to play catch with a stitch that I had neglected to pick up from the 15 stitches on waste yarn awaiting knitting up for the thumb on one). These were not difficult, just for me fiddly; I haven't knitted on four double pointed needles in a while. Thanks to A and B, I moved down from U.S. size 2 to size 0 needles; otherwise, these would have likely fallen off my hands and L's.
And I took this looong pink tabby from the loom, which was the first thing to be finished in almost 20 years. I think I'm going to order these waffle weave dishtowels from Halcyon, rather than design anything at this point, just to keep up the rhythm.
Plus I haven't been doing much during spring break over at the university . . .
but I'll try to have a syllabus up soon in preparation for summer school.
