There were five of us gathered Friday night to get started on our projects. Only Jessica, my daughter-in-law, and I made it to the real torch lighting just a bit before midnight.
Xena thought everyone had come to pay special attention to her. Karen was torn between petting Xena and pulling her shawl out of her bag.
Saturday was beautiful. After weeks of rain, we had sunshine and warm weather. Everyone was up early to knit. Jessica made herself, and Montana her Lab, a very nice knitting nest.
Here's my progress on my Gauntlet Latvian Mittens. The edge is curling up so I am going to go back, add an I-cord border and a lining for the gauntlet. I am so happy with the results so far.
To get in as much knitting as possible, I am carrying my mittens with me at all times. I got in a few rounds while I waited for the color to set on my hair before a much needed haircut.
Tonight I will be able to start on the hand part of the mitten. I need to figure out a convenient way to keep my graph tidy and ready whenever I get a few minutes to knit.
