This week I knit fingerless mits for Ann (green) and Mary (yellow). On Christmas I discovered that John's mom & sister work in cold offices like I do. In the winter I wear fingerless mits at my desk all day and they help a lot. I hope they are kept warm by my handiwork.
I finished Ellie's legwarmers. They ended up cuter than I would have imagined and I can't wait to give them to her.
I made myself a cowl out of bulky hand spun wool I picked up at a stand at the last indoor farmer's market. It adds a lot of warmth and looks pretty cute too. I had been coveting the yarn all summer, so I finally decided to go for it. I'm glad I did. It's a cold winter and I'll get a lot of use out of a cowl.
On the needles I have a snowshoeing hat for myself. I finally frogged my first attempt at a sweater, so I should have the second attempt OTN in time to watch the Hawkeye game tomorrow night.
In addition to the other projects, I am making Mom a lace ribbon scarf. That project will be on the needles a long time, so I will give a weekly update. The scarf is currently twelve inches long.
