Projects go MUCH faster whenever I succeed at knitting monogamy. It makes sense – if all the efforts go into just one project then I’ll plow through it. Sometimes, though, I get a wandering itch, where I want to put down the big project and whip up something in just a few days.
I got home this evening and decided the thing to do was make mittens. Tonight, one mitten down. Hopefully I’ll crank out the other mitten before the weekend, and get pictures up. The mittens are on size 10.5 and 13 dpns – holding the size 13 double pointed needles is just craaaazy – they look like little spikes!
I’m using the One Skein Museum Mittens pattern found on the label for Artful Yarns Museum (which is the yarn I’m using). I bought the skeins at Great Yarns in Raleigh in March 2005 – so it’s been in the stash awhile. Stashbusting and instant gratification – what more could a knitter want?
