"Do the kinds of things that come from the heart. When you do,you won't be dissatisfied,you won't be envious, you won't be longing for somebody else's things. On the contrary,you'll be overwhelmed with what comes back" Morrie Schwartz I am overwhelmed by your kind birthday wishes.. and response to the previous posting. If I did not get the chance to thank you personally by e-mail,please accept this thank you.Thank YOU! It comes from the heart. Now you are all thinking that I must be as slow as a snail... {really,I just wanted to use this photo!} About the drawing...but it is now... today... just give me a minute or two... I wanted to share my quick fingerless mitts design. Share the pattern with you all,in hopes you may try them yourselves sometime... Traveler...Fingerless Mitts... ©T Does Wool Less than 1 skein Rowan Alpaca Cotton color/Thunder US #8 needles...I used straights,because that is what I had at the time,but can easily be converted to in the round. finished size before seaming..8"x 11" Cast on 34 stitches.

The leaves are turning,and the jewels of autumn are all around us. my inspiration for my new project...e'tole transformable combining Dream in Color Smoochy and Rowan Kidsilk haze, has made an interesting fall shade/almost tweed like with a soft halo. the pattern, and Dream in Color were both gifts to me... and a look in my jewelry case was fruitful in finding a beaded necklace that matches it almost perfectly. I also started Rowan's Toasty Snood from Winter Gifts. Made from a camel colored alpaca... a gift from a friend in Tasmania... and Lena...don't forget Lena , I am still working on her...

I guess I'll just knit whatever you're knitting this fall. I returned the yarn I had leftover from shadow[]box last night... and picked up a ball of alpaca cotton with these mitts in mind!

Wow, that is a great quote. I have a pencil and paper and am writing it down.
Thank you for the pattern gift as well. I have been wanting to make some of these. Good morning Mitts to keep my hands warm.
