Technology is not being my friend today and that means that I only have one of three pictures to show you -- is it just my account or are others having problems with their yahoo mail today? Sluggish doesn't even begin to describe h..o...w.....s..l...o......w... it is. I gave up trying for now.
The knitting, on the other hand, went pretty well last night. I cast on the Pop Up Paws for Sandy's Warm Hands and zoomed right through to about the mid-thumb area. These are going quicker than expected, but I guess that's what happens when you're using US 4 and US 6 needles, huh? Plus, I'm using Tahki Donegal Tweed and maybe I'm a simpleton, but I'm just wildly entertained at how a tweedy yarn knits up. I can look at it in the hank and it's okay -- gray, some color nubs in pretty colors -- but start knitting it up and watch the reds and oranges and blues go by and become part of the fabric and I just have to keep knitting to see what's going to happen next!
What you see in the background is what I've accomplished so far on Shirley Shrugs. I intended to knock off a few rows on that, too, but was mesmerized by that mitten. My wrists thank me, actually, for giving the cotton a break, so it's all good.
