Knitting This Week

7:33 AM

It's Wednesday again and that means it is time to share books and yarn with everyone for the Yarn Along.   I've been knitting a lot for C's school.  First I made the hats for Children's Hospital and when I had yarn left over I made this cute little Aviatrix.  I had yarn left over from that so I thought I'd make the mittens to go with the hat and the school can raffle it as a set.  I used this pattern and got to knitting.  I had a good game of yardage chicken going and ultimately I came out victorious!  
 This is how much yarn I had left over after completing the mittens!  I made two hats and a set of mittens our of gifted yarn!  Now on to some fingerless mitts for C's teacher.
 I started reading Boundary Waters this past week.  My friend, whose mom lives in Northern Minnesota on the boundary waters has been reading them and passing them to me before she mails them to her mom.  We are reading them in order and that fits in with my compulsive need to read them from start to finish.
Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!  Have a happy Thanksgiving my friends.
