Freezing rain forecast for tomorrow. I guess I had better knit something warm to wear--or at least cover my lap! I am working on a REAL pattern now that my experiment has proven successful. Although the Ear-Warming Headband is a v-e-r-r-r-y easy knit and just right for beginners,  I hope to finish the work on a pattern for some mitts.  I wear mitts almost every morning during computer time but the pairs I have are alpaca or JASPER. They are warm, but very fuzzed  and do not look as good as they did.  I am currently knitting a pair in a new (to me and my LYS) yarn called TONIC by JojoLand. as a pattern experiment. As soon as the pattern is ready I will post the link. And, of course, plenty of pictures.

In the meantime, I continue on my BONEYARD shawl,  the PURL RIDGE scarf I just cast on Friday, and my LAVA FLOW cowl has taken a back seat for awhile. All are free patterns, but you have to belong to Ravelry to access Lava Flow, so I did not put a link here. If you are "on Ravelry" you will know how to find this pattern.  If you are not, you will have to wait until I am finished with mine and then you will be able to admire it and tell me how much you love it.

I find I keep returning to knit my Boneyard shawl because I am using my favorite needles--Lantern Moon, size 8. Then I move to the mitts--Lantern Moon size 5 DPNs. I think I just discovered the key to finishing projects that are already on the needles: switch everything over to LANTERN MOON NEEDLES! Better than chocolate.

Lantern Moon are my favorite needles, too, and you know where that got me! Blogging as their biggest fan...

Knit on!
