I finished the Mango Moon Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf before the pre-game show was over yesterday, wrapped it 'round someone's neck for a photo, and emailed it off to Norma for the Red Scarf Project blog. It turned out to be a great little scarf -- definitely not the warmest, but very cute and it made me very happy while knitting it to think of it possibly making someone else very happy to wear it. ; )
I can't believe it was over two years ago that I answered Larissa's call for Meatheads. It's so weird to write about, refer to, and link back to things like that on my very own blog, when two years ago I barely knew what a blog was and now I've written over 800 posts (and counting) of my own. Blogging has brought a richness and an awareness, an unbelievable camraderie and (even more incredible) real, live, actual friends... but I digress. It was a no-brainer, when I read about Larissa's new Meathead project, that I had to join up. I picked up some Lamb's Pride Bulky at Iris last week and used it up to knit up two hats yesterday. Is there a quicker hat to be knit? The first was on US15 needles and turned out small (may be given to Mack), the second was on US17 and may find it's way into a box with those red mittens. I still need to embellish -- that's the challenging part for me -- and post before the end of the KAL on Thursday.
Mittens heading to New York! I actually found more singles than pairs in my mitten pile, but also this pair of unfinished handknit ones -- I've only a thumb seam to do and they're finished.
It's Monday, the Packers are in Seattle tonight, you know where I'll be.
