I was able to wall off a few hours on Wednesday night and get some knitting done on the second mitten.
As I near the completion point, I become increasingly annoyed at my inability to find them a loving home. Part of the problem is that they’re an odd size. They fit my hands perfectly, but I have very large square hands. I would call them a Women’s L or a Men’s M.
I have taken to carrying the completed mitten around with me, and encouraging random people to try it on, Cinderella-style. So far no one who has fit the mitten has taken the bait. (Honestly, who wears mittens?)
I have also been seriously considering just giving them away here on the blog. But I don’t want the other knit bloggers to hate me for throwing off the curve. Maybe I’ll do it in conjunction with a charity drive. Who knows.
In other news, a few people pointed out that I had left the all-important tagline off the new blog header!
I updated the graphic this morning on a whim. The new tagline doesn’t fit the style of the rest of the header in any way. It clashes on several levels. And yet, it amuses me.
[Edit: that joke doesn’t make sense anymore, ’cause I just changed the header to a less brain-hurty tagline.]
