I have a standing Tuesday night date with two good friends. One of these ladies suffers from Reynauds. If I didn’t see it with my own eyes, I don’t know that I would believe it – her fingers turn blue! And not just a slight, bluish cast, but blue. It really is an alarming sight. She is very proactive and stays on top of the symptoms, always bundling up and keeping those little packet hand warmers in her pocket. Dr. PurlingSwine however, is prescribing a pair of mittens. My knitter’s heart believes that hand knit mittens will do a much better job at keeping her blues at bay than those store bought ones. I was hoping against hope to have these finished for tomorrow night, but I don’t think that will happen ….. seeing that I only cast on last night, it was a foolish dream.
Up next on the list of things to show you is my Jeanie. This is a brilliant pattern! It is blowing my mind with the reversibility and dropped stitches – all the magic tricks in one lovely shawl! The Dream in Color is fantastic too – this project is turning out to be knitting nirvana!
