I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

Between Thursday night and Friday afternoon, I made a pair of ladies' medium sized mittens out of a single skein of Noro Kureyon #128, which I had left over, and size 6 needles. That one skein was not enough to finish them, so I took a color from another skein of Kuryeon to do the thumbs, and they came out great. I gave them to my daughter's afterschool program director, a wonderful young woman who takes good care of the kids. I had just grabbed her hand the other day and held it up against mine, and said: You have just been measured.
She said: Finally! :)
Friday, last day before winter vacation, I gave her the mittens, by putting them on the desk in front of her.
She said: Did you make me mittens?
I said: I did.
She said: Cool! Thank you so much. Can I give you a hug?
I said: yes! Then I showed her the book "No Sheep for You!" which I had just brought in and showed her my design in it. I told her: See? You now have mittens made by a published designer! Now, these here mittens are made from wool. Are you OK with wool?
She said: I love wool! Then she walked off and showed them to her staff.
