What's wrong with this picture?

Travel knitting. I was all ready to get started. I was determined to knit the 'Cardi Cozy'. I'd committed to a color ('Hurricane'). I dug around for all the accoutrement that the project would require, including the next size bigger needles, in case my gauge swatch was way off.

There was just one thing I forgot to factor in.

Glue Failure. Ugh.

They're mailing me out new needle tips, asap.


Perhaps this is a not-so-subtle hint that I should get more of my current projects off the needles. That Karma, she's a feisty one. And sneaky.

Speaking of sneaky, here's a peek at my Christmas present from RedRhonda. Yep. They are those mittens, from winter Vogue Knitting. Melly got a pair, too.

It's amazing how Red can keep this stuff under her hat. If I were knitting mittens this cool, everyone would have been forced to endure countless viewings of said mitten, as it grew and morphed into something so pretty. I'd have shoved these mittens under every nose in three counties, with a startling "hey, look at how cool this pattern is". My behaviour would have been appalling, and there would be absolutely no element of surprise.

That Red (redrhonda if you're rav), she's a wonder.

Now I have to go clean my kitchen. It's part of my 'year of living dangerously'. Seriously. There's stuff in my fridge that could rip off an arm if I'm not careful. Type at y'all knittas latah. C

Those are fabulous mittens. I wish I lived closer . . .

Travel knitting - where are you travelling to? Cleaned out my fridge today and bought groceries, just can't get motivated on laundry. g
