I give up.

I am simply not capable of blogging regularly.

My hope is to someday have my craft stuff be my job, but as it stands, I have another job and my boss just upped my work load a bit. That, in addition to the fact that Brent and I will be getting the first installment of a stream of visitors in a week, puts crafting at the bottom of the list. Sad times! Sometimes I cheat though. Sometimes I get so sick of cleaning and working that I drop what I'm doing, and grab the first craft I can see. Yesterday was one of those days.

This is about the time of year I start thinking about knitting stuff for the winter. I was searching for a good mitten pattern and I found one that I thought was pretty awesome. They're long (go about 3/4ths up my forearm) and I really like how they look. I decided to try out the pattern and BAM! The first one was practically done! I couldn't BELIEVE how fast it went! I knit all but the thumb and mitten top in less then 2 hours. Yaaaaay for instant gratification :]

Sorry for the awful picture. The color is really more of a dark eggplant purple then a plum. I'll take a better one when it's not the middle of the night, but I just wanted to give a sneak peak of the general idea. I love 'em! The cables really stand out. I think I might give this pair to my mom. I rarely give people the results of my first try but these have turned out lovely. Probably going to make quite a few pairs of these this year for people, haha.

Well, I gotta run, but I just wanted to give my 4 amazing followers a little update. I'll post pictures of the finished mittens in a couple days hopefully! Thanks so much for reading :)
