We had another beautiful sunrise this morning. I wanted to take a picture, but I was driving to work and traffic was not favorable for pulling over to snap a picture or two.
But...I do have some knitting to show. This was one of my secret knits - fingerless mitts for my friend Carol (who was at our house Saturday for dinner). She does a lot of photography and I figured these would come in handy in the cooler weather. Happily she was thrilled with them (and there were two even though the picture is only of one - lol).
The yarn is some I bought at Good Karma Farm a couple of years ago.
I also made another pair for a friend at work who was recently diagnosed with leukemia (now in remission, but still out of work - a long road ahead of her). Whenever I'm not feeling well or even just very tired, my hands get extremely cold. So, I thought they would be nice for her - she could still easily use her phone or tablet, but hopefully be a little cozier. I used some KnitPicks fingering weight yarn and then forgot to take a picture of them.
Next up I want to make some with an actual thumb piece instead of just a buttonhole for sticking your thumb through. I might just have the time next week!!
I'm still reading "The Keeper of Lost Things" which I am liking ok...I just haven't been reading very much. However, I did bake two more kinds of cookies last night: oatmeal raisin (not my favorite, but Fletch loves them) and ginger creams which are just kind of a cakey cookie that taste like (surprise!) gingerbread.
So, today we leave work by 11 for our luncheon and then we can go home!! I hope to get some gifts wrapped this afternoon and, perhaps, a little nap.
Hope you are finding yourself relaxed mid-week leading up to Christmas.
