Ho HO Ho

My Knitting Guild is having our Christmas party right now. I am not there....obviously.
I really wanted to have that Pecan Crusted chicken, too. I paid for it. And it's at a lovely girly place, an old Victorian B&B.

But noooooo, I am sick.

Bah Humbug!

OK, enough griping. I do feel better than I did last night and missing a dinner isn't the end of the world.

I made my first pair of mittens. I did them both at once, like I do socks. Finished off the top of the first and it was just a wee bit too short, so I frogged it back to the colored section I had put in the middle of the mitten and just bound off. Picked up the stitches for the thumb and bound them off after a few rounds rather than making a full thumb. I will wear them on the paper route, since they are not as nice as I would like. I need to work on the parts near the thumb. It seemed like I had a hole as soon as I rejoined to work in the round (after putting the thumb stitches on waste yarn) and I do not like how I picked up stitches for the thumb. Not neat looking. Oh well, I figured as much, which is why I did them out of Encore and not the Cascade. Try, try again, but probably not until after Xmas.

Y'all stay well.

Jeepers, this is no time to be sick. And to miss a fun party too with wonderful food. Hope you are on the mend.

Who thinks up these crazy letter combinations on the word verification? They make me giggle.
