All of the knit and crochet items sort of make me look forward to winter...there is really not a lot else I feel like doing in winter...I really hate the cold!
Naantje--I think even in the coldest climates here, the fingerless mitts are mostly worn indoors...a lot of offices are kept colder than what women like...it seems the men get too hot and they seem to win the war of temperature control! We can't use our keyboards with cold hands...I wear mine at home for the same reason...I like to knit with warm hands...also, in the car...you can wear them and still control the steering wheel...I make them for everyone I can...they seem to be a welcomed gift!
Cmouse...you look great in that color hat and scarf! I also have no patience to do an intricate doily...I have so many patterns from Japan that are just beautiful...my mom was a huge into making doilies!
sheepblue...that shrine brought tears to my eyes...I have known kittykill and Lola a very long time...I am sure it brings her comfort to see something bright and cheerful...love your lino cut cards...what a process!
freakiegeekie--looks like you are getting a jump on making mitts for the holidays!
bookstorebabe...your "thing" was very cool! I love how you keep on coming up with new ways to recycle "stuff"...
I have been making fabric baskets for the sweat shop swap: Here are four of them...did a total of six but can't find the pictures of the other two!
