I’ve really appreciated my knitted warmies lately! Our weather roller coaster has been more down than up recently, and then there’s the matter of having to take Toby out, instead of just being able to let him out, due to the stalled construction project. In addition to YakTrax Walkers (we’ve had a bunch of thawing, then refreezing), my good wool mittens, hats and socks have gotten a lot of use. I knew these mittens had been around for quite a while, but I’d forgotten just how long until I checked today—I knitted them in 1988, they appeared in the November/December issue of Knitting World, and they’ve been in use ever since. I think that says a lot for using good quality materials. The exact yarn isn’t available any more, but Quebeçoise from Schoolhouse Press would be an excellent substitute.
We’d almost run out of treats–gasp!–so I had to order some. The package came today, and naturally Amber had to check it out. I don’t think it’s possible to open a treat container anywhere in the house without her catching on to it ;)
We didn’t remember to pick up 3-D glasses in time for the SuperBowl commercials, but Himself did get them in time for “Chuck” on Monday night. I watched a bit, but found they got in the way of my knitting too much.
PS. I was just blog-cruising, and read this – if you’ve been around kids, you’ve probably been-there-done-that. It sounds so, so hysterically familiar.
