In the summer I hope a wet weekend will be all about swimming. For now a wet weekend means we find things to do inside. I had a lot of trouble with this mitten, and had to amputate the thumb four times. I am so wishing I had paid attention when Mom was still able to knit. She was a master, and could knit anything. My sister is another master, but she lives 700 miles away. I doubt if she'll be dropping by to help me with this thumb!In my optimistic way I started a new mitten. Now it would have been sensible to make the second one out of the same yarn so I would eventually have a pair, but I just wanted to see how this yarn would knit up.
We're having another baby at work. The ultrasound technician said it's a boy. The doctor said it's a girl. I was going to wait until its arrival so I would know for sure, but what if it's sunny and warm then, and I want to play outside? I'm making it mostly unisex with a few small pink squares thrown in to side with the doctor.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! If you want a cool geography lesson go visit Jodie. www.vintagericrac.blogspot.com
