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."
