Mitten envy


How pretty are these "Let it Snow" mittens? Seriously, I'm in love. Vogue Knitting posted its Fall Preview and I like a lot of things in it, but these mittens are my favourite. Now I really need to knit the second Bird in Hand mitten so I can get started on these (and hopefully finish them before April 2009!)

I haven't done a lot of knitting this past week. No, scratch that. I got quite a bit of knitting done but I frogged most of it so I don't have anything to show for it. I suffered from delusion and even though I knew that my SOS 08 socks were way too big, I kept knitting and knitting, thinking they would fit. I finally came to reason after, oh, four inches. I started them again but I'm still at the cuff.

I also want to mention that I'm writing this post on my brand new laptop! My old (desktop) computer was 7 years old and I thought it was about time that I replaced it. Unfortunately, I can't tell you much about the computer, I don't know anything about these things and my boyfriend helped me when I bought it. It says HP Pavilion on it. And it's black. I can't say anything more. But I LOVE it.

I picked up Fall Vogue the other day, it's got some great projects. Did you pick it up yet?
