Well, it really isn't cold out..but what better excuse to use to display new mittens?..
I made these using Cascade Pastaza in a few days..as I raced for the finish line of a friends birthday..then decided I'd felt them a little to add a bit more charm..WELL..
they're in the mail..priority even and I've not heard if she has gotten them or not...I suspect she's away celebrating her special day and not even received them yet...They were fun, easy and my best pair yet..I really need to get a few more pair whipped out before the holidays...eek..it's not far away is it?
I think life is getting back to normal..wherever that is after the death of my Brother..it wasn't totally sudden, but it was much quicker than we anticipated..He was only diagnosed in May with cancer..a really ugly, cruel disease!! It has been difficult on my Mom...He was her first born, her only son..and her memory issues at times play tricks on her..and she forgets he is deceased..but we quickly pull her back and she's ok.
Don't forget tomorrow is Election Day..please go do your civic duty..VOTE!
And with that being said..I'm off to work on ...another blanket~scarf~mittens..or cowl~
