The Strikke-along is my first foray into KAL-land! It’s fun to know other people are casting on colorwork and running with it, too.

Here’s another pic of my mitten-in-progress.Img_0316

It’s going slowly, mostly because both Mike and I are sick, though he’s had a fever for the last two days, and my head’s remained cool. Relatively speaking, anyway. This virus just seems to knock you to the couch and leave you with a dry, achy throat for way longer than necessary.

This morning, before the kids came home, I did have a nice look-through of Poetry in Stitches again. I decided that my next project, assuming I can finish these mittens and DD’s sweater within a month, will be gloves for my mom’s Xmas present, using a rose pattern from that book and the hand-dyed yarns I made last spring. The background will feature variegated  blues and purples, with the rose in pink. My mom loves those kinds of colors.

Knit on, strikke-ers….
