It started with washing all last year's scarves and cowls. Handling all my dusty knits made the itch to knit unbearable.
I had to cast on a sock. It's a Hermoine.
Then believe it or not, I got the thumb finished on the Snowfling mitten AND started the lining AND cast on the other mitten. I was on a roll Sunday morning listening to podcasts.
Now about that lining. I almost ripped it out thinking I had picked it up wrong when at the very last minute, just before giving those needles a good yank, I realized the mitten was just turned inside out. I would have been more than upset with myself if I hadn't caught that. Picking up those stitches on the picot cast on edge was a bear. The lining is Knit Picks Capra btw which is Merino and Cashmere. I love it.
