I am still reeling from the mass shooting at my former workplace, the Capital Gazette in Annapolis. Last night, I dreamed about a shooting happening at my school.
How did I manage to choose two professions that are low paid and attract mass murderers? Don't take career advice from me!
But life does indeed go on, and that is a good thing. It is 96 degrees here, with a heat index of 117! We actually ran our stand-alone air conditioner for a while. It works, but it is incredibly noisy!
I can walk in the mornings, but it's good weather for sitting under a fan and knitting. I pulled out these mother-daughter mittens that I started in 2007!
And I finished them!
The pattern is from the book Kristin Knits by Kristin Nicholas. The yarn is her Julia yarn, which hasn't been made for years. That is a shame because it is a beautiful yarn and a pleasure to work with.
The lesson I have learned from this project is to never embroider mittens. It is really, really hard to start and end threads in a narrow tube shape!
Now they go into the gift box until an appopriate mother-daughter pair needs a gift.
