I survived the holidays; everything is bright (but cold,) and I'm ready for spring, please (yes, that is a black wreath.) We can even pass on my birthday at the end of the month -- I won't mind at all.
Ah, but no, January's unavoidable and non-skippable, which is just as well since it's NaKniMitMo. Yes, this ambitious KAL is already underway with people polishing off entire pairs of mittens despite the month being a mere three days (barely!) old.
I am especially impressed, since my knitting is still mired in its usual holiday torpor. The Feathered Friends mitten hasn't grown a stitch since you last saw it. Swedish Rococo, on the other hands, has a cuff, but that's about it:And what a slow-going cuff it is. I expect my speed to increase this week, so stay tuned.
