New Year, New Knit

So I started 2008 by casting on for the Maine Morning Mitts in the scrumydelicious Sheep Shop. And I cast on, and I cast on and then I cast on again.



Needles too large, needles too small, not enough stitches. It's all too boring to discuss.

However, my dislike of dpns has been rekindled. It's like using tree trunks that keep jumping up in my path. I hate 'em. I'm switching over to either shorter dpns (if I can find them in my needle stash) or two circulars.

Meanwhile, lots of people are getting sick with the Norovirus and each time I hear on the news that the Norovirus is going to reach epidemic proportions this winter, my inner adolescent switches into Homer Simpson mode. . . . "Norovirus. . . Mmmmmm Noro."

I'm knitting Fuzzy Feet on dpns and am wishing I did't have to but that's what I had at hand when I started. I'm with you, I'd have much more enjoyed doing them on circs. They're pretty tho!

I think you should become a hand model! Wouldn't that be a nice job? Mitts are going to look and feel great.

I love the color on that - and I'm with you on DPN hatred, though I'm a magic loop girl myself. And I have to say that noro is much of an eww for me though I know most folks love it!

The colors in the yarn for your mitts are just stunning!

Hmm ... I thought that Norovirus caused an irrepressible urge to buy Noro ...
