Child's Fingerless Mitts

Just thought I would toss this little pair of fingerless mitts in as part of my knitting. I modified the pattern for Maine Morning Mitts found in The Knitter's Book of Yarn. I used a double knit yarn and size #4 needles. Knitted 3" to the thumb gussett and a total of 6" for the length of the mitt. Otherwise I followed the pattern Ravelry Link Happy knitting to all.

Yes--Some Knitting

The little bag is made from a pattern called The Gelato Bag by Fiber Trends. It is made from Paton's SWS Color Natural Denim. The striping is very subtle, but it is there. Ravelry Link

The sweater is called Mandarin Jacket from the book Knitting Simple Jackets. It is made from Cascade Ecological Wool color #9451 a green heather. Ravelry Link.

So between not feeling too well there is knitting getting done. I also knitted a few things I gifted before taking pics, alas.

My chemo was postponed till next week d/t low blood counts, but things are looking good. Happy knitting to all.

A Contest

For a cool contest--go here.

Monday, January 4, 2010


I know, I know--it has been way too long since I updated. So--here goes. December was not a good month. I got radiation twice a day for 3 1/2 weeks--Nov and Dec. Went to the hospital twice with really low blood counts and dehydration. One was a 4 day stay and one was a 1 day stay. Radiation is done and I am doing much better now. I have only 2 rounds of chemo left to do. For now, things are looking good--but will not know for sure how effective everything is until after the chemo is done and they do another CT Scan. Please keep up all the thoughts and prayers. They continue to work. And thanks to all for the thoughts and prayers. BTW--the holidays were great!

We are getting way too much snow--right now we have about 2 feet on the ground with tons more expected by the end of the week. And it is cold, cold, cold. And I am getting some knitting done--will post about it later. Some were gifted before I took pics. Happy knitting.
