I *finally* finished my mittens I started “last year” for my friend. I made one, then I got motivated to do other things, and I finally finished a second. Of course it has the same problem many of my mittens have, that it’s too small:
but at least it’s done and a pair. I think I’ll finish a second Telaio mitten to give to her, though.
In the spirit of stashbusting, I have been looking through my stash for oddballs and needles I need, and I found a WIP from who knows when. Last year sometime I was starting socks here and there, then I got totally off of the sock bandwagon and put them all aside. (I have 4 socks OTN that I can remember, and two that I finished one sock but never cast on for the second.) So I pull out this Knit Picks Palette sock, work on it for awhile, try to make it into a fingerless glove, and decide it is just not the right size for my wrist. I (gasp) frogged it. Then I pulled out all the Palette I have including another WIP I started who knows when and got stalled on. I’m now making a top down raglan and we’ll see how it goes.
I also had one of those funny experiences the other day that you can’t share with anyone but another knitter. I saw someone wearing an Odessa hat! It’s so funny when you can identify a pattern that someone has made and you’re not at Stitches or something like that.
Now if I could identify the yarn, I would be very very proud of myself!
