did you see the new issue of magknits is up? and did you see the adorable yet oh so functional peekaboo mittens? well i would like to say i am a stellar knitter and finished these up in record time since the pattern just debuted today, but alas, i was a test knitter back in december for dear megan. isn't she clever? i just LOVE my mittens.
mine were knit using manos so they would match my silk garden scarf. when it snowed i wore the combo a lot. i have to admit i am not much of a "normal" mitten person. i can't even lock my door without taking them off. but these, well these are a whole different story. they never have to come off because i can do everything in them, you just pop your little fingers in and out so easily.
no update on the car yet, my insurance company is in the process of approving the quote from the dealership. i am just about 2 weeks with no car (ok minus the 3 hours that i had a loaner last saturday). my home owners association has been notified and some sort of pest people will be coming out to survey the carport. apparently this isn't that uncommon. i just want to do everything to prevent it from happening again.
and i am still fighting what i thought was symptom of my sinus and ear infection. dizziness (like motion sickness). but i have been on antibiotics for 6 days so maybe it isn't related or my ears are really messed up.
ok, i hope to put up some markers for sale next week. i want to announce how it will go down tomorrow, but we'll see how i feel. have a great day and go knit a pair of megan's mittens! :)
