Happy Friday everyone!
Wow, this is another week that I am not sorry to see the back of (except for the fact that my husband is working all weekend - sigh).
My 3rd trimester has brought back my worst nemesis (nemes-i? nemesises?) the 2 H's: heartburn and and... well, that's probably TMI. Needless to say, I am pretty much uncomfortable every waking hour and some of the sleeping ones too. Add in a husband who was away one week and then working 12 hours days the next, a little boy who is sick again and an unexpected winter storm with frigid temperatures and I am pretty much done.
I wish I could say that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel but really all I can see is the addition of a screaming baby in less than two months!
Thanks goodness for knitting. It is probably my only reliable retreat right now.
I spent part of this last week knitting the most delicious mittens.
Simple pattern, beautiful yarn and pretty colours... the perfect recipe for a much needed, if short-lived, escape.
Pattern: Warmest Mittens by Kris Percival (free!)
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted - 65 grams used total
Needles: 3.75mm and 4mm bamboo DPN's
I moved the position of the thumb on the second mitten relative to the start of the round so that the colour changes occur just inside the thumb on both mitts.
I love these mittens. They were so hard to send to my friend for birthday. Fortunately, my LYS just had a big sale on malabrigo worsted, and judging my the new additions in my stash, I suspect there will be more of these mittens in my future : )
Here's one last pic of these pretty mittens with an even prettier project bag that a wonderful friend gave me this week for my birthday. Isn't it cute?
I hope all my American friends out there had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that the rest get the chance to enjoy one last relaxing weekend before the festive season is truly upon us. If you get a chance, take some time to check out more FO's through Tami's blog and Knit Knit Knit!!
