I finished the fingerless, thumbed gloves, but only after a trip to Watkinsville for more yarn. The pattern was great—easy and clear, even for a dpn beginner—but I ended up with three inches of yarn with which to knit the final thumb. And I'd been very stingy with the tails, too, leaving no more than a couple inches for each. Anyway, now I have some extra pretty pink yarn to do something with. The thumbs, by the way, were much easier than I thought they'd be. I'm ready to make another pair, as backup for when the dogs chew up these.
Here they are in the matching pink bedroom. You can see where one of the cables is twisting the wrong way. Oh well.
And here they are on, with matching pink bug. She'd just woken up, which is why her eyes are all movie-star puffy.
I live in Lincoln, Nebraska, with my husband and our daughter, and our dog, Cooper. I've published four cookbooks, "Secrets of Slow Cooking," "Hot Drinks for Cold Nights," "Canning for a New Generation," and "Whole Grains for a New Generation." My next book, a vegetarian vegetable book, is due out in spring 2014.
