Migraines, MItts and Socks.

And pretty much in that order. I had a lovely time visiting with Karen over Thanksgiving. It boggles the mind how a person ( uhhm, myself) can consume as much food in one day as you (I) would not normally eat in 3 days. Anyway, it was good. I love turkey, why don't I make it more often?? I love pies too, but I know why I don't make those more often ;) The Migraine came Saturday and decided to stay for the long weekend. Thank goodness for Imitrex is all I am saying.




I finished the orange mitts. We went with the name Argyle Mitts. The pattern is on its way to MO to The Loopy Ewe, along with several others and another new sock pattern. This pair will be for the eldest child to gift as a Christmas present. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock.

















I finished the Spritely Goods socks in the Manzanita in Bloom II. I am wearing them to day and I have to say, they are quite comfy. These are in the Dancing Tulips pattern.



And I had plenty of yarn left over so, I knit up a pair of fingerless mitts for the youngest. She has been wanting a pair with all the mitt knitting I have been doing. The pattern for these will be available on the free pattern page at The Loopy Ewe soon. I emailed the pdf to Sheri tonight. They fit the 10 year old's hands very nicely and she loves them. Because of the rib effect they have a great deal of stretchability and I think they will easily fit a child from 6 to 10 or 11.


And I finished the new sock. This pattern is also on the way to The Loopy Ewe. We went with the name Wedge for this one. This yarn is Gypsyknits in Sock it 3 ply Merino. In the City Blues colorway. It is a lovely yarn to knit with.
That is it all I have and I am going to call it a day. Have a great rest of the week, and Happy Knitting.

Love the new mitts and socks. Hope the migraine is gone and doesn't come back anytime soon. You always find the prettiest colors and pick just the right pattern for the yarn!

The mitts and socks are wonderful (I was really rooting for "Wedgies" but Wedges is good too, just not as funny). Lauren will be wearing her new mitts 24/7 Talk to you later.

Oh my gosh! The patterns are gorgeous and I'm thinking I may have to "hit" the Loopy Ewe for the patterns.
Migraines: must be in the air. I just got over one of those things. I hate them but then who doesn't, right? I do hope you are feeling better.
Keep on knitting! Do you have a knitting fairy who helps out? LOL

Migranes suck! Hope it is gone.

The mitts and socks are so lovely. I think I might have to knit the smaller ones for my niece.

Totally sympathize about the migraine. I've only had a few headaches that came close to migraines, but they were completely incapacitating!

I had planned to play hookey today, and it ends up I have the chills and a slight headache. Mmmm. If I could make myself sit up, I would knit. I think I'll nap instead.

The mitts are great. I have some leftover yarn that would be perfect for them.

I just love what you're doing with all the mitts lately - every single pair is gorgeous - you are so talented! The argyle is one of my favorite - I'm going to be eyeing the loopy ewe for an update.

Sorry about the head - you KNOW I feel that pain don't you? Any wow! Aren't you prolific! Congrats on all the stuff at the LE.

Your socks and mitts are beautiful!

I absolutely love your socks! And I'm looking forward to the fingerless mitt's pattern. I've got plenty of left-over sock yarn laying around.

I am not taking the time to read your most current post right now, I promise I will come back and do so soon, I can tell by the pictures of the socks I will be interested, but I wanted to take this opportunity to ask you if you would be interested in coming over to my blog and vote on the contest entries I have posted. I would like to see if I can get unbiased opinions in the voting process by asking people who didn't enter to come and vote, and am asking bloggers I read to visit me over the weekend to help with this. Thanks!!
