and another post...

I'd intended to post the previous post a week ago.  But I opened up the blog and it hadn't actually posted.  So in under an hour, through the magic of the interwebs, I've finished the blue bird and the year long fingerless mitts.  Also I'm further along in the Serpentine Mitts. Mine are bright yellow.  In fact they are the exact same yellow as the legs of the blue bird... odd that. I'm very proud of myself, I'm doing them two at a time on magic loop.
For those of you who haven't used magic loop, here's how it works: 1) attempt to knit using two circular needles 2) forget to switch needles and keep knitting until you have whatever it is on one needle.  It looks like this:

It is soooo much easier than trying to use double points! And they will both be done at the same time.

My happy thought for the day, given to me by Yoga Scott:
Be compassionate to yourself, so you can have compassion for others.

Love Scott's happy thought/intention. Love him! The gloves are looking great and I'm proud of you for knitting the two at once. That's awesome!
