Thrummed Mittens Term Position: Now until June...

I finished my thrummed mittens last night! I hate to say that I'm relieved to have them finished because that might sound like I didn't enjoy knitting them - I did. I just lost the momentum after the first one and it was hard to get that back and get the second one done. Once I started, it was quick (I'm sure I could've finished it in an evening but it took me a few hours over two days - The longest part was making all my little thrums).


The mittens are more even than they look in the picture!

I'm not 100% sure what I want to work on next... I have a sock that's partially started from my Whitehorse trip... But then my knitted Nativity that needs some attention... I'd love to have the Nativity done by this Christmas (totally possible if I work at it) so I should maybe get some work done on it.

Speaking of the dreaded "C" word... I have NO idea what I want to do for gifts this year... I toyed around with making stuff but I have NO idea what to make everyone... I guess I should figure that out ASAP!

We got a tonne of snow overnight! Usually the snow is good because that means all the mud is gone but that's not really the case - there's still mud around hiding under all the wet snow... I got totally covered in mud yesterday trying to wipe the truck off - grr! Maybe before it gets too cold I'll try to wash the truck...

I think I am jeolous of your snow ;) Although, I wouldn't know what the *&@(*$% to do if it did snow here right now!

Oh man, you can have it - all of it! I think there's close to a foot out there now (wet, heavy stuff). bleh!

Beautiful mittens! And (gulp - dare I say it?) beautiful SNOW!!! Hey - it covered up all the brown stuff didn't it??!!

But I know what you mean about the yucky heavy white stuff... much prefer the fluffy dry snow...

Thanks!

The snow LOOKS beautiful but has been a HUGE pain... A bunch of trees broke and a lot of the willows/smaller shrubs have been flattened (we have a better view now!!)... And it also totally destroyed the landlord's patio set (bug net, umbrella etc). yikes.. AND!!! lol - it was still warm enough for there to be mud under all the snow... I like it when the mud is frozen then trying to get around isn't quite so messy...

(I know.. Complain, complain lol It's been a rough few days :-P)
