First FO of 2008

Well, it's only the first week in January and I have already finished something! YAY!
Yesterday I quickly whipped out a pair of fingerless mitts for myself. I have had this yarn in the stash for a while (leftovers from my What-knot scarf), and it was much too pretty to waste. Alex claimed my Fetchings for herself, leaving me without. Plus I used stash yarn. 2 goals met!

Speaking of goals, I have been making lists for myself again this year. This is my way of staying on track. I do so much better with a list to work from. I tell ya, my memory sucks! I mean REALLY sucks. If I don't write it down, I WILL forget. Just ask my kids.

The weather is crazy here. Yesterday it was almost 60 degrees! 60!!! It's January. In MICHIGAN! Weird.
This is the view out my window this morning. Just makes ya want to knit all day on that sock doesn't it?
Brodie thinks it's a good day for napping.
What a life. If dogs could knit, I think I might like to be a dog for a day.

Nice!

Our weather's been weird, too. Bitter cold then warm (relatively) then freezing once again...

I cannot get over the Brodie cuteness. I need more Brodie cuteness! More! More! More! :-D

I love the colors in your gloves - vibrant and rich!

Our temps have been in the 40s all week and will go up to the low 60s today.

I think Jade agrees with Brodie - Death before dishonor, nothing before sleep!
