I know that once you move (back) to California you lose all your cold tolerance, but this ridiculous! It was 40 degrees this morning and I wanted to walk outside but I was too cold!

I did have a line on a job at the local racetrack, but this is ridiculous! I am able to double it up at least:
Unfortunately I didn’t finish it in time to warm myself at the park. There’s always today. Then last night while watching another thrilling episode of October Road (there have been better, but it was pretty good – I really hate the way they talk in that show – it’s very “writerly”) I finished one of the formerly fingerless gloves I started in Portland. I’ve really mastered Kitchenering on the fly (including yesterday in the chair at the eye doctor), so I didn’t really realize that I wasn’t at a Kitchenering stage – I forgot to decrease! The now mitten looks great like this:
I do enjoy that Lana Grossa Telaio more than I thought. It’s a railroad yarn that turns out to be rather solid with shiny bits. Anyway, if you look more closely at the thumb:
I really did try to take the Kitchener out and redo it, but I couldn’t because of the yarn. It does fit, though.
