I am still in love with knitting mittens and enhancing my mitten supply at the house. I made several pairs of Maine Morning Mitts last year before Christmas, and during the winter worked on Holly & Poinsettia mittens as well as Fiddlehead Mittens.
I made Musica wristers for DD (she is a music ed/violin major and heads up the UMO marching band's tuba section) and also Entomology Mittens for the household. In short, I now need to make a smallish Shaker style peg board, such as they stored chairs, and use it to display what I am coming to view as my art mittens....There are some very talented mitten designers out there! Thank you, ladies!
The most recent pair are the Parhelion Mittens I am making as a friend's
birthday present. They are made from Noro Kureyon sock yarn, splitting the skein into two balls, each starting at a different point in the color sequence. Use one ball for Color A and the other ball for color B. Simple. Incredible colorplay, with all the hard work done by the color folks at Noro.
I've also worked on some lace projects. I'll try to get some glamour shots of those and get them uploaded as well.
And yes, I've lost 72 lbs., feel great, sleep better than I have in years, and my kids have a hard time keeping up with me. My Hemoglobin A1C is below 6 now! And my medications are greatly decreased, along with their cost!
