Wow! I'm glad that you all liked the Charlie Card Mittens. It was a simple alteration to a common knitted item. If you want a pair--go for it. The reader scanned the card through the pocket just fine.
Guess what? My knitting plate is very clean. It's time for my next helping of knits!
How fitting was it that I had the opportunity to see Shannon last weekend and fill her in on my upcoming project? So far I have had to adjust the pattern for my gauge (Shannon wasn't surprised), and add a little length to the body. Not big changes. I want my sweater to look just like the one in the picture (and to fit me just as well).
I'm using some Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran that I've stashed for at least a year. Do you want to know its name? Casket. Seriously. It's not such a strange name for yarn if you know that "casket" can also mean a small chest or box for jewels. But still, I (and probably many others) think of it as simply a synonym for coffin. What a weird name for yarn.
Get ready to follow along.
