I finished the mitts with Pogo’s yarn, more or less the Maine Morning Mitts, but I cast on 39 stitches and used 3′s and 4′s.
I basically winged the thumb, since I’d loaned the book out and received the instructions on the phone… but look, you can download the pattern (link above)! There’s a bit of a ridge at the cast on section of the thumb that you can feel, but not when they are on. Given that it was negative 5 F this morning, I definitely had these on, even though they are a gift.
More snow? We are supposed to get another foot or so tonight… we’ll be challenged with shoveling it out of the driveway.
ok, this isn’t our house, it’s one of two really humongous piles at work… last year there was still snow here at the end of June, and we have gotten way more snow this year… I’m interested to see how long there will be snow here.
I spent most of today feeling a little giddy, like a kid at holiday time. Why? Thinking about that spinning class for one. And for another, I (am fairly certain and reasonably sure that I) finally got the bugs worked out so that our temp agency (the folks that pay our temps) can get paid. Long story short, it’s been a long time, it wasn’t my fault or responsibility, but after making a lot of noise, and then asking what I can do, I finally demanded to know what the problem is and managed to get it straightened out. When they get their check? I’ll definitely do a little dance.
