You know that I have a thing about that Town and Country sweater. I have (pretty much) been faithful to that knitting since trying to delude myself into thinking that I could get it done for the November sweater knitting Month. Ha. That did not happen. Or for December. I was pretty determined to have it done for January. NaKniSwe3Mo. National Knitting a Sweater in 3 Months, not a widely circulating knitting group, but an important one for us turtle knitters nonetheless.
ANYHOO. My hands, they are cold. Not just cold. ICY. Freezing. The kind of cold that hurts. And me, with not a handknit mitten in sight! Imagine? The mittens that I have made? Not a one. Blech. This is so unacceptable to me. And there is Helgi’s mittens, from Folk Knitting in Estonia (How much do we love Nancy Bush?) (Not Laura Bush, Nancy Bush!)
I will be taking a short detour from the Town and Country knitting to warm my hands. What can I do? My hands (mittenless) are tied. I cannot stand to face this frigid cold without handknit mittens.
You’d do the same, wouldn’t you? I hope Town and Country doesn’t get wind of this.
(I fear that I am turning into a CAT BLOGGER….)
Both of the kitties love a toy that we have dubbed a ferret. One will carry it upstairs and play endlessly with it and the other will sneak up later and carry it downstairs to have a play fest of his own with the ferret. One little toy, 2 ferret loving cats.
