absence of blogging

Sorry, folks, just not feeling up to the blogging these days, I'm going through some personal drama right now and knitting has fallen by the wayside a bit. Hopefully things will settle down soon. Happy knitting!

I haz a mitten

Just one at this point, but better than none, I guess:

After giving up on the Knotty Gloves for this year, I thought I might make some quicker mittens to keep my hands warm until spring arrives (and of course, it was 70 degrees today--no faster way to change the weather than to knit something appropriate for it). I'm making these Chevalier Mittens with some lovely soft Malabrigo. mmmmm.

I also got another fantastic package from my Warm Ewe Up spoiler:


How gorgeous is that sock yarn?? A wonderful package, she really outdid herself this time!

Blog question #5

What knitting/crochet pattern have you worked that you could see yourself making over and over and never get tired of?

To be honest, I've never knit the same thing twice--I have a hard time just knitting a second sock! There's just so much to knit out there, I wouldn't want to dedicate time to knitting something I've already knit. That said, if I had to pick something, I guess I would go with Chapeau Marnier. It's relatively easy, particularly with most of it being stockinette, and yet the result is gorgeous.
