Two projects are in queue to begin as soon as the postal service kindly (and hopefully quickly) delivers my order from Knitpicks. One is for Olivia, who rarely is the recipient of my knitting. She wants a pair of fingerless gloves. Here is the pattern she picked. She also picked this yarn in aurora heather, though for the life of me I can't figure out how to link you straight to the color! It looks like I will be knitting on the equivalent of toothpicks! Size 1.5. Yikes! My most fervent wish is that I will have them done before the cold really sets in.
The second project is to make two new wool covers for Therese. One of them will be a regular cover. The other one will be my first attempt at longies. I will be using this pattern. I was just going to make the longies until I accidentally felted one of her covers a couple of weeks ago. It inadvertantly got thrown in the hot white load. Note to self: be more careful when sorting laundry.
I have been disappointed in my library for the first time. I have seen several reading suggestions on the Yarn Along that looked simply delightful only to find out that our library does not own these books. When we go for our weekly trip to the library on Friday, I will show up with a wish list in hand and request the purchase of said books.
Thank you, Ginny, as always, for hosting.
