~Peekaboo & Calorimetry~
I am alive and well and living in an icy winter wonderland! We had a snow day today which gave me a good excuse to put dinner in the crockpot, do a few loads of wash and hunker down with the girls to watch movies and knit! I couldn’t have asked for a better day!
My new favorite knit are the Peekaboo Mittens
mentioned in my previous post. This is my 4th pair and I have decided to keep them as my own – I can’t say enough about these mittens. They are an extremely quick knit and I plan on making some more to put away as Christmas gifts for next year! Megan from the Pensive Frog
has created a knit-a-long that I have made a button for on my left sidebar. Please feel free to pop on over to take a look, join in and get the pattern!
Yarn: Lambs Pride Worsted
Color: Medieval Red (which is more a deep burgandy than the picture shows)
Size 6 dpn’s for the ribbing on the wrist band
Size 7 dpn’s for the remainder of the glove
Along with my new Peekaboo mittens I decided to jump on the Calorimetry
bandwagon, which is what my “snowday” knitting consisted of. This was also a quick knit and would also make a great head start knit for Christmas – although this one is mine made to match the mittens 😉
Yarn: Lambs Pride Worsted in Medieval Red
The middle is knit with Symphonie in Bain 169
I cast on 110 sts and otherwise follwed the pattern, and the fit is perfect
The button is from my Grandmother’s “button box”
Well, I’m off to visit my dh who has just arrived home at 10:00 PM. The poor man left before light this morning for work, and after work took care of the snow at my parents, here, his cousin’s house and then went to fix the heat at my sister-in-laws! The man looks dead on his feet!
The girls are hoping for another snow day tomorrow or at the very least a delay! 🙂 Greedy little things that they are – I guess that just proves that we all had a great day together!
Stay warm and drive safely if you are on the slippery East Coast!
