Hey, remember when I used to knit lots of stuff? After the technical brilliance that was the Wavy Cables Scarf (and Hat) it seems like I'm coming down off of a small fiber high. Oh, don't worry, the knitting's still happening, it's just happening on a much, much, much slower basis than before.
January's the perfect time for me to kick back and relax a little bit with my knitting (some feel it's the right time to knit lace). And knit a thumb or two.
A few of you asked if I have a favorite mitten pattern. I have a mitten pattern--Ann Budd's pattern from The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns--and I don't know if it's my favorite because it's the only one I have ever tried. It seems to work well; why tinker with what works?
