I got a message from a friend. He wanted to know if I’d knit mittens for his wife. There is little that makes my heart more satisfied than taking an order to knit for someone. It’s a secret, though. The mittens. But here’s a glimpse. Aren’t they going to be sweet?
The end is in sight for the mittens I was working on when I got the order. I haven’t decided where they are going to live yet. I am knitting them “just because”. You know by now there’s not always a reason or a recipient, I knit cuz it makes me happy. I’ll put these aside till I finish the other ones.
In other news, I’m teaching 2 people to knit via Skype. What a hoot! It takes a special kind of patience to want to learn something so hands on via skype-these girls are quite amazing. I have a date to help my daughter (in-law-but I prefer to just say daughter, cuz she is my girl now, after all), Amanda, turn a heel on her very first sock! I’m so excited I can hardly stand it.
In the meantime, there’s home school to get done on a very blustery cold day in the Pacific Northwest. What are you up to today? What’s making your heart happy?
