In my last post, I had just started on a little pair of mittens for charity. Well, I've been just a tad obsessed with mittens, and have now completed 8 pairs.
Dorothy wrote to me a week or so ago asking if I would like her sock yarn left-overs. She had heard thru the cyber grape vine that I knit charity mittens out of them. Actually, I had been thinking of knitting just that.....but her inquiry gave me the incentive to put my larger sweater project aside and start some knitting of mittens. Doesn't everyone knit mittens when it's pushing 100 degrees outside??
Our hot summer continues. Thankfully, every day is one close to what must surely be cooler fall weather - eventually. We are trying to enjoy one of our summer favorites - while it lasts. DH refuses to grow corn in his garden, as he hates to deal with the stalks that are left after harvest. So, we always buy delicious corn on the cob from farmer's markets and roadside stands. This year, the early crop is sweet and delicious, as normal, but apparently any more will not be as sweet or as large in size. So, get it while you can is my motto.
And, I have given up. I surrender, I say "Uncle"......
