hehehehe!! I’m super excited and its hard to restrain myself from running door to door showing all my neighbors my first bit of fair-isle stranded knitting!!! (I know at least one neighbor that wouldn’t think its a bit odd.) I started the fiddlehead mittens pattern from Hello yarn Sunday night. I’m using Lion-brand fisherman’s wool and Autumn House farms del rio. Both from the stash. I’m feeling mighty proud of myself right now!!! but then again I haven’t reached the thumb…..
Here’s a quick update on Allysa, she’s doing much better. We saw the Dr on Friday and he said according to the blood tests she doesn’t have any allergies. He said to only give her the albuterol breathing treatments when she is wheezing (not very helpful, its really hard for me to tell when she is wheezing). And to give her the steroid breathing treatment till we turn off the furnace. We will be seeing an asthma specialist in the end of April. Hopefully that will be a bit more helpful. I do apperciate you guys, you really helped make this hard time for me better. ((hugs))
Lots left to do today before I can pick up the mitten again, Corra’s birthday is Friday. And you all know Easter is on Sunday. The first day of Spring is tomorrow (I think). Oh, and yes, did you see the start of my mitten? Just in case you missed it the first time, I am a bit excited about it…
maybe, I should cut down on my caffeine intake.
Oh my, that mitten is fabulous!!! You must just want to knit and knit on it all day! 🙂 I’m still scared of Fair Isle. You should be very proud!
Oh that Fiddlehead!! Love the yarn sub…
OOoh, so jealous, I love your mitten.
Glad to hear about the kiddo, keep us posted.
Oh wow, the mitten is absolutely gorgeous!
I hope the asthma specialist is more helpful, will keep my fingers crossed. I thought of you Sunday when Dan came to me and said it hurt to breath. They flipped out just a bit when I took him to the doctor’s office on Monday but decided it was some fluke thing because his O2 sat was good etc.
That’s a might pretty bit of knitting there!
Love ya, Mom
(Miss you all too!)
Very cute mitt! No I wouldn’t think you were nuts to come to my house to show it off…but we would get stared at quite a bit ooooo’ing and awww’ing like two kids. *giggles*
Congrats on your stranded mitten. It really looks great! I’ll be excited to see your photos as it progresses.
Nice work. I have still not gotten to two color knitting or Fair Isle. Eventually I think I will get there!
The mitts are coming out great! I’m glad Allysa is doing better.
Love these mittens more and more every time I see them. Your color choice is great! Is this really a good first project? I’d love to try it.
