Happy Friday, everyone! It's weird, but even when you aren't working, Fridays still feel good. The big difference is that Sunday evenings and Monday mornings also feel good.
As the title of this post says, I've got a mixed bag for you today. First, I want to thank everyone for the lovely comments on my last post...they mean so much to me!
And while we're on the subject of comments on my blog, I realize that I forgot to choose a winner for the Technique Junkies CD #8 at the end of October. Better late than never, I just shook my iPhone for a random number and the winner is #10, Donelda.
The project I'm really excited about at the moment are these mittens I started knitting last night. The cuffs are done with corrugated ribbing, which I had never tried before. I haven't done stranded knitting of any kind in quite awhile so at first it felt like I was knitting with two left hands with all thumbs. But, once I got the hang of it, I was zipping along pretty well. I found the pattern on Ravelry. If you knit or crochet and haven't discovered Ravelry yet, be sure to pay them a visit. The site has tons of patterns, forums, blogs, groups, databases that let you catalog your yarn stash and supplies, and project albums. It literally took me days to explore the whole site!
The final item in my bag today is a card that I made for the Design Junkies blog using the Designer Tiles technique from the August 2008 newsletter. The stamps are from Inkadinkado, the papers are a mix of scraps and new Basic Grey Jovial, and the "grout" is Ranger old paper Distress embossing powder.
OK. I think that's it for now. I'll see ya when I see ya!
