I loved this stole, even though it took me a long time. I ended up giving it to a friend of my mother's. I think my mom was kind of jealous of it. I'll have to find another pattern to make Mom one just as nice, if not better...

I know that it's been a while, but I have been knitting. Actually, what really distracted me was that I bought a condo in San Diego! Otherwise, I've been busy with the usual, work, sleep, dog, etc. But I have been working on projects. I have to say that this sweater is probably my favorite item so far. It's from Simply Baby by Debbie Bliss and it's totally worth the work!

Before I left Seattle, a few of my friends really wanted a pair of mittens that were convertible. Seattle isn't always cold enough for mittens but sometimes you just need a little something extra to keep warm. California isn't known for its cold weather but it's been a little chilly lately. I decided I needed a pair. With all the scrubbing I have to do for surgery, I used a yarn that could possibly help with the dry hands. Even if the yarn doesn't help, I love them!
Pattern: Broad Street Mittens
Needles: Crystal Palace #2 CP
Yarn: Austerman Step Colorway 21

So, it's been getting colder in San Diego lately. I don't remember it being this cold last year. A few times my car has been reading in the high 30's when I go off to work. So, I realized that I could help myself by making a pair of Fetchings! They were really fast and easy. I only cast on 40 stitches and I lengthened the cuff a bit by adding a repeat but it's basically the same pattern.
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash Color 855

I have a lot of projects going on but I felt like I needed to have another sweater on the needles. I was going to start something from the latest IK but instead, saw Twist. There was just something about this one. Here's my start. I have the next 4 days off and I plan on just staying home, running a little, and knitting a lot. I have a lot of presents to try and get through...I don't know if they'll all get done...
