I really am liking my new knitpicks needles. I needed a little break from the pinwheel blanket, though, so I started some mittens. The first pair I've ever done. I would have had them done in two days, but somebody hurt his ankle, and I got a little busy. Just kidding!
LD loves her new mittens. I saw her showing them to her teacher today. She also knits and asked if the thumb was hard to knit. It wasn't. I started myself a pair, too. The 6 yr. old nephew requested some, and I have some really soft, dark blue yarn that might work just right!
These are made of Paton's Merino Wool. On size 4 needles. Mine are going to be of some hand dyed by me fisherman's wool. I'll show a pic soon.
I am at something like 510 stitches on the pinwheel blanket. It is really cute. I'll show a picture of that, too! Yeah, promises, promises!
I hope I'll have time to read some blogs soon, too! Darn blog lines, sometimes it doesn't tell me when the blogs I like are updated. Then it'll say 6 or 7 new posts at once, and they're really not that new!
So, today was busy, because we had a dr. appointment for SP. The drive there is like 45 min. or so. Then, they sent us for a catscan. We got home, I sent some emails, then I went and got LD from school, dropped her at girlscouts, went to get supplies for my class, went and picked her up, and then went to MM's basketball game! We didn't even have supper until after 7! That's pretty late for us.
Supplies for class? That is the knitting class I will be teaching tomorrow. I love to teach kids to knit. I have eight students. There are a lot of classes to choose from, and the knitting one I do, is always full! Yay! The only bad thing is that it is only for four weeks. I wish they were longer. The pta pays for the supplies, and the teacher's time. It is totally free for the kids. My kids have done: games, juggling, sign language, crafts, yoga, and this time LD is trying ballet.
Hopefully, I'll be able to get on here often, and read blogs, and post. We'll see with all of the craziness of injury, and sports, and holidays going on!
Knit on, Knitters!
