Last year I had a crazy daydream that I would knit and wear some finger-less mitts before winter had passed. It seemed like every other blog post yearned for them.
Last weekend I finally finished a pair that I wanted to give my mother for Christmas. Quest for mitts becomes a success! Ravelry link here.
Pattern: Gimme Some Love Fingerless Mitts is free!
Yarn: The Alpaca Yarn Co, Classic Lite
I can't wait to knit up another pair in our home-grown yarn in a few weeks! Only a short while left to wait before our first batch of yarn comes back from the mill!
It's almost too warm for any sort of knits this winter. Temperatures expected in the 50's this week.
But that warmer weather is great for putting our new set of chickens outside for an inaugural trial of outdoor living. As you can see, they still have a few things to figure out. There are 75 square feet in which to run around in, yet they choose to lay all over each other in the tiniest corner.
Finally, a little pig update. Couldn't resist making a purple one in honor of my favorite restaurant. Yum!
Finally, "reading" some Harry Potter on CD these days. I'm almost through book three already. What are you crafting and reading? Join the fun at Ginny's for more fun posts and ideas!
