Handspun by Sharon fueled mitten/wristwarmer jag. I love knitting for people who love to get knits. And since these were for my knitting group, they *really* liked them. However now I don’t want to knit another mitten for about three years.

The Thanksgiving That Twitter Made

Thanksgiving was small and filled with way too much food, despite our best efforts to make as little as possible. We just finished up an entire stalk of sprouts yesterday. And my first ever homemade cranberry sauce was a success.

November 29

Eww. The weather is grey and icky as autumn has finally kicked in. We’ve got the tree up already, anything to make this dark time of year a little brighter.

Happy Tuesday.

  1. Wow…seeing them all together in one post makes them even more impressive! I’m in love with your stripey mittens…you used great color combinations. I especially love the 1st and 4th ones!

  2. Awesome mittens! Now I want to make a bunch too. That hat is pretty cute and now I know what those little leaves were for. :)

    Now you’ve got me thinking about cranberry relish. If only Christmas would get here so I could eat some.
