February 2 - Pattern

The pattern book I'm using to knit a pair of mittens for my husband.
And if you're a knitter, this book is essential, in my opinion.

Yay, mittens! I wish it were cold enough where I live to warrant knitting a pair for myself :)

ha ha ha! You are technically correct. besides it's "art" so isn't it all up to your interpretation?

I think that's what's so fun about the photo challenges - coming up with your own take on the daily prompt. When I started looking around my home for any kind of pattern, I found very little to shoot! Guess I'm a plain Jane.

I wish we didn't need them! Am feeling a little closed-in about now. Too much snow for us to get down the driveway. But the mittens will come in handy for shoveling. One done, one to go.
No matter what I do, I always end up with mittens with holes chewed through (from the dogs), or mismatched pairs. I really should learn to knit....

And the beauty of this pattern is there's no right or left mitten ... either will fit either hand. I usually make three mittens when I give a pair to a child - they're ALWAYS losing one!

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…
