Two Wild and Crazy...
Mittens. Did you think I was going to say "Guys"? I am amazed and delighted with how these knitted up. Aren't they great? Of course, if you lose one, no one will know what other mitten it matches!
I am trying to use the rest of the yarn (less than half of the skein now remains) to make smaller mittens. I am using the multi-gauge/multi-size mitten pattern from Ann Budd's book, The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns. I'm on the second mitten now, but I'm concerned I won't have enough yarn to finish it. If that happens, the only option I can think of is to frog these (rip them out) and make thumbless baby mittens.
We got in our largest translation job ever, close to 100 pages, and it needs to be done by May 7th. So if you don't hear from me for a while, that's what I'm doing. Any free time I can carve out will likely be devoted to knitting. I've got two different flavors, uh I mean brands & colorways, of rainbow yarn coming in. Soon I will have what we call here in Israel a "problem of the wealthy", trying to decide which yarn to use for my niece's knee socks. If only all of our problems could be that sort.
