My glittens are finished! Thank goodness!! Terrific to wear, they are - fun to make, they are not. Sofee and I will deliver to mom as soon as they are dried. Sounds like they will be to her just in time for another major snowstorm!!! This is a semi-original pattern, knit of Dale of Norway Heilo. Dpns size4,5, and 6.
Also finished is another fun and quick pair of worsted weight socks for the "bigger kids" at CIC. Stitch pattern courtesy of Marguerite. Thanks again Marguerite!
Probably the new "Monkey"by Cookie rage brought to mind the time when "Jaywalkers" by Grumperina was all the rage. As I remember, there was a fitting problem for some, while others just loved the pattern. I was intrigued, and in an effort of procrastination from the dreaded glittens, I cast on Jaywalkers. Sort of love them.....!! So far the fit seems fine, but time will tell. I am knitting these in a Lisa Souza yarn. The colorway is Graphite, and is really more gray and less blue than the photo portrays.
And - for the new beginning part of this post: One can never have too many Monkeys!! I am casting on for my 2nd pair very soon. Shirley and I are doing a pair in a plain color while joining in the Sockmaniac's March KAL. Should be fun!
Come back later for a BLT! (1st sign of spring at my house!!)
