I’ve picked up my knitting basket again, after neglecting it for too long. In part because of mitten requests and, in part, because I’m trying to put the laptop down during prime time TV hours. I’ve been working on boiled mittens—a pair for the teen and a pair for my mom.
I’ve got the teen’s knit:
I’ve been putting off the boiling, though. Not my favorite part and I may as well wait until Mom’s are done, too. So, in the meantime, pre-boiling, they remain rather large.
I’m about 3/4 done with the first of Mom’s mittens.
I want to have both pair done and boiled before the weekend after next, when the teen and Mom have their next living history event. Pretty chilly outside the last weekend in October.
In other news, I have news!
