  • A Really Old FO

    In my last post, I mentioned a plan to put together a 2008 Knitting Year-in-Review type post, and when I started to do that, I realized there was another FO that didn’t have any pictures – oops!  I finished my Mmmalabrigo House Mittens back in November, but…wait…as I am composing this, I am realizing that the mittens have been finished since November of 2007 – holy crow!  And they still never got any FO pictures, because mittens are a pain to photograph!  (Does anyone know if there are mitten blockers, like sock blockers?  I’ve never seen any, but I think they would come in handy.)  But another fun Christmas present I got was a remote for my camera, so instead of fancy mitten pictures, I present pictures of me goofing off wearing the mittens instead!

    Imagine the scene on my patio: focus camera, go stand in approximately the right spot, click remote, frantically shove remote in pocket and come up with some strange pose, rinse and repeat.  I’m glad there is a fence so that most of my neighbors probably couldn’t see me.

    This is supposed to be something you’d do if it was cold and you were clutching your arms to your chest to keep warm…only, as you can see, I’m wearing a short sleeve shirt.  Now, in all fairness, if I hadn’t been protected from the wind and had been out there for more than a few minutes, I would have gotten cold really quickly…but still.  It’s supposed to be a bit chillier tomorrow, perfect sweater weather, so that will be lovely.

    And on that note, I’m out!  Much to do to finish preparing for tomorrow.  And I guess one of these days I’ll do a 2008 Knits post…hmm…  =)

  • So can I tell you just how much it has tickled me to get your messages on my blog??? How are you? What are you doing these days? I don’t think I’ve seen you since graduation… And can I tell you that I love your blog? I just discovered it this evening…it’s fabulous! Makes me want to learn how to knit (and take really good pictures of the knitting) Hope all is well. – Anna D.
