... as he promised, my house is clean(er) and I'm back with knitting pictures.
On Friday I finished up Mom's Dalhousie mitts. If she didn't know I was making these for her, I would totally keep them for myself.
If you haven't gotten your hands on a skein of Bugga, I do recommend it. Soft, squishy, and a dream to knit with. The only downside - this one bled quite a bit. My bamboo double point are now stained a light teal - and I had to keep washing my hands every time I set my knitting aside. I doesn't seem to come off during the wearing, but I think I'm still going to give these a good rinse and block.
There was some other knitting this weekend.
But I can't show you because it's a secret.
In other news - today is my birthday! My coworker and I booked the day off together (I'm pretty sure the boss is regretting approving that right about... now.) and we've got a salon day planned, fish and chips for dinner and then maybe a little mayhem... I mean baking... in my kitchen.
Dave won't be home until late tonight, but he let me open my present early...
Not the greatest picture, but it's hard to snap a shot of your own ears! What you probably can't see is that it's all celtic knotwork. He also gave me a celtic knotwork bookmark and pen. Something tells me I need to make that boy some cabled socks!
