Greetings from frosty eastern PA! We've had some very crazy weather here lately. Last Monday it was 80 and now it's 37! Yikes! Had to drag out the winter coats for the kiddos. I sewed their little name labels in their coats and hats last night so they won't lose them at nursery school. If you're ever looking for nice name labels, here's where I got mine: Name Maker, Inc. .
I cast on for my first pair of mittens last night while watching Carnivale (not the easiest show to watch while knitting!). I'm using the mitten pattern in Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns (finally bought it after checking it out from the library a bazillion times). I've only used dpn's for hat before so it took me a bit to get the hang of using them for the mittens. This pair is for Frances using the same yarn as her hat. I plan to do a pair for dd1 too if I like how the first pair turns out.
Thanks to all who have left comments! It's very encouraging!
Gotta go pick the munchkins up from nursery school!
This moving in and unpacking is tiring! How do things look so far? I'm not sure I'm totally thrilled with the blog name. Maybe a contest to name the blog is in order??? Thoughts?
Many of you know me through my visits to your blogs (Susan from PA, remember me?). I've learned so much from all you knitbloggers out there! I'm putting together a list of the knitblogs that I read on the right over there. There are some very gifted knitbloggers out there!
Have you checked out knitty's new bboard? Too fun! My name on that bboard is imaginecreativenamehere.
Here I am...FINALLY! I have a blog!!!! I'm trying this out on Typepad to make sure I really want to join this crazy blog world. I've been patiently waiting for my dh to get a blog up for me but got fed up waiting and did it myself! Now to try out all these fun features and maybe get some actual blog content up. Ciao!
