Well we were promised snow today. Eldest son was expecting a day off school. Youngest son and myself were expecting a day of little work and loads of snowball fights (our school never closes). But you know what we got? Nothing more than a sprinkling , not enough to cover the pavements even. So it was school as normal. Bother.
I have had reports that the Bloggy Raffle prizes are starting to reach their destinations. Goody! I have cast on with my prize - the Rowan Colourscape - making these fingerless mits. I managed to finish one last night and did this much of the second this morning (woke up early, couldn't sleep, felt it was much more productive to knit rather than trying to get back to sleep).
I have worn the completed one today and I have to say it is very warm. Great yarn too! I will have plenty left so may have to do the ribbing of a hat and complete the top of it in another yarn.
Unfortunately this mitten knitting means that the Mystery Blanket is on hold for a few days. And I blame it entirely on the fact that I'm knitting a horrid lacy square in a horrid colour with horrid yarn. Hoping that there won't be too many of these squares - although I suspect I'll have to do at least another 3.
Oh yes and confession time. It was weigh day today. I have put on 3.5 pounds. Ratbags, bum and arse.
Still, I did enjoy all the mince pies, chocolates, sweets, bread, cheese, cakes and trifle. So really, 3.5 lbs is not too bad considering! I am very cross with myself though and am back on the straight and narrow once more. Just off to empty the fridge of all the remaining badness. The birds will be really looking forward to breakfast tomorrow!
