I can’t get them off my mind.  Mittens.  Thumb gussets.  How to decrease the tops.  The proper cuff length.  A longing to be good enough at colourwork to attempt some of these.

Walking the dog twice a day might have something to do with it.  Or it might be a desire to knit something that is art, rather than just a product to keep someone warm. Christmas knitting is leaving me feeling a little like a knitting factory rather than an artisan these days.

Here’s a festive little video: Interweave Winter 2008 photoshoot video.  A wonderful and tantalizing look at the behind-the-scenes view of the photoshoot.  Can’t wait for my copy to cross the border and arrive in my mailbox, all full of promise and projects.

    I’m smitten with the poison ivy mittens, and even moreso having linked through and discovered that they were knit with recycled wool.

    Now I just need to learn to knit mittens…
