My hobbies are very seasonal: April-August is gardening August-September is canning October-March is knitting My canning & gardening are about done for the year ... ... so I've pulled out the knitting needles again. I commute by bus for 2 hours daily and can get at least an hour in daily. 1) I'm working on a pair of mittens for my mom to match the scarf I made her last year. I'll post pics soon. The cuff is multi-colored Italian wool with a gold thread in it. The mitt will be fuzzy chenille in lavendar. 2) I also need to wind the yarn I bought on ebay (hand painted worsted merino wool from Uraguay, seller is "100purewool"... gorgeous stuff!) into a ball. It's in a knotted skein right now. That yarn will eventually become a hat for my brother. Which project I work on tonight on the bus depends on whether I see any of my chatty friends. Hard to read a new pattern, talk, and knit. Easy to wind a ball & talk. What are you knitting now?
