More Knitting in 2010

Originally uploaded by readingknitter01

Got a lovely project bag hand-made by my sister; a camera from my daughter; and lots of yarn (mostly green, which is my favorite color) so I will be knitting a lot this year.

Last year I only missed 5 days so in 2010 my goal is to knit every single day. I will also do toe-up socks, color work, and finish as many UFOs as possible.

Jake's Dumber than Snakes Mitts

My 10-year old nephew would not give me any rest this Christmas until I made him some fingerless mitts-especially since I knit things for several other family members this year. He watched me making the mitts, commenting on my speed and progress and allowing me only short breaks until I finished. He hasn't taken them off except to sleep! He chose the color scheme and will probably wear them to soccer games-the yarn is washable but i don't think they will stay white for long.

It's cool to have a 10-year old boy demand that you knit him something!
