Knits all around
Joy of joys! I found a yarn shop that can score me a copy of the Norwegian Insanity Mitten (and Stocking) book, Selbustrikk.
The shop owner will translate for you as well. If you want your own copy, visit www.arnhild.com and email her.
Suddenly I find myself knitting for everyone else but me. Not a problem, but I hear the siren song of fiddly mittens and red lace cashmere.
I may be a test knitter for a new Selbu glove and mitten book. I found her by a mention from Miriam Felton on Knitty D and the City's Podcast interview. With a little web-stalking I found Terri's website.
(You may be asking, what of my self designed, charted and ready to knit Selbu mittens? I plug my ears and hum at you...)
I also thought knitting for Christmas would be quick and easy, but one of my intended smaller projects just became huge. Oh well.
My husband now has placed an order for more handknitted socks. It's true, knit socks for someone once and you'll be knitting them socks forever! When the thermometer dips, he reminds me that I promised him a hat as well. I'm going to start on that next.
Right now I'm on the heel flap of my first Pomatomus socks. I love the yarn, love the pattern, but it seems slow going. Perhaps it's because I'm so done with socks for a while.
