Darned Mittens!

No, I'm not using profanity; I just fixed the poor thumbs of my  Woodruff Mittens with a darning needle and leftover yarn. The mitts are my favorite hand warmers this season, and with impending cold weather on the horizon AGAIN, it was time for fast action.

And fast action it was. I took care of the problem on the ride to and from the gym today. Don't worry, I had a chauffeur! The one on the right was practically disintegrating, so it got pulled a little tightly into a small knot. Oopsy... The other one I took a little more care with, so it was more successful.

Bring on the wind chills. I am ready for those gusty breezes!

Slow Progress

My resolution to ride the stationary bike and knit is not going well. However, there is some occasional work being done on the Trigere pattern. I think I might have to start setting a deadline to push to the finish finally. Warm weather is due to return sometime this year in spite of the bitter frostiness we are currently experiencing. 

Maybe I'll knit some mitts first...
