I started knitting mittens recently.
I cannot tell you how long it's been since I knit a pair of mittens. Mittens with fingers, that is. Once I discovered fingerless gloves, I never looked back. But, I'm busy knitting for my Winterfest booth and I figured some people may want their fingers covered so... Mittens with fingers it is.
I can't believe how much longer it takes to knit that thumb and those fingers. Fingerless mitts are SO much faster!
On a different note, I wanted to share a book I recently read with you.
I didn't think I would enjoy Constance, but boy was I wrong! It's a story about cloning which is not my normal read. It also takes place in the future, which is really not my kind of read. But I was gifted a copy of Constance and I'm so glad I read it. It was fast paced, not too sciencey, there was a little bit of mystery and murder and well, you should just read it yourself and see. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
What have you read lately that's out of charector for you?
And hey - my mitten and the book cover coordinate! That was totally unplanned but I love it when things like that happen.
