One down, one to go

The power went out this morning at about 9:45 and stayed out for an hour and a half. I had nothing better to do but finish my first mitten. I think it's pretty frigging cute and can't wait to finish its pair so I can wear them proudly. The weather is starting to get colder, so it'll soon be time for scarves, mittens, hats and all things wooly. I wove in most of the ends, but I still need to either block or press the base of the mitten so it doesn't curl.

Here is the amazingly yummy Artyarns supermerino I bought in Dartmouth last weekend. And yes, that is Moustache getting ready to pounce. If Moustache was a 20something young woman, he would be the most high-maintenance woman out there. He will only play with expensive yarn. He scoffs at the thought of playing with anything made of acrylic. It's only cashmere and merino wool for this kitty.
The Artyarns supermerino is colour 101: a melange of purple, gold, navy, brown, olive, with turquoise highlights. These three balls will soon (when I finish my second mitten) become some lovely Thuja socks for hubby. Here's hoping I can figure out how to turn a heel. Eeek!

  2. I love all of your knitting projects! They look great. I've made some sad attempts, but can't seem to find the patience to work on them. I just clued in, I think you might know my sister, Marla Landers? She worked at the Vanguard for a few summers... maybe not. Anyway, happy knitting!

  3. I do indeed know your sister (well, kind of). I think she also used to take piano lessons from Mrs. Hayes with my brother Nigel (or maybe that was you?). I think Marla worked at the Vanguard the summer before I did. Neat-o. And thanks for the compliments on my knitting! I'm obsessed with knitting. Eeek!
