Today I have been sitting inside and not going out. This is part of the reason why:
There is a windchill warning, and I just don’t feel like it (it is -27 centigrade and feels like -40 — I don’t need to look up what that is in Fahrenheit as that is almost where they are the same). I am not sure that anywhere in the city is better than right here:
I made myself a nice pot of soup for lunch and continued working on a project with an upcoming deadline, which is the other reason I am not going out. I am still working on it for several reasons, among them that I started these:
They are Mari Muinonen’s Yellow Harvest Mittens from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2008, except of course that mine are red (Hmm, I just noticed there are errata, I wonder if they will affect me yet).
I can’t wait to really get on them when I am done the sweater this weekend.
I really should make myself finish two projects for every one I finish for a while. The number of unfinished projects is getting a little out of hand. I don’t propose to be someone who only knits one thing at a time — for me attempting that would just be silly, but maybe five current projects would be feasible. Now I will just say that I really don’t know how many I am “working on”.
