Anyway, it never made it out of the low 40's today and has been raining off and on all day. I can't remember the last time we had cold weather and rain at the same time. I got a chance to throw on a handknit scarf for more than a touch of style but I do have a question for you cold weather dwellers...
How do you manage shopping when you're wearing a winter jacket? What a pain.
Anyway, I had to take my teens out because their youth group was having a formal Christmas party and they needed some new pants.
(Ignore the short sleeves... they always wear short sleeves.... we're in So Cal. And I had to go on YouTube to learn how to tie a tie.) Don't they look sharp? Don't they look like they can't stand being near each other? They can't. It's sad really, but I figure they'll outgrow it. Someday.
Maybe it's their different personalities?
Maybe. We got a new youth group leader at our church about 4 months ago... he didn't even know they were related until last week. Niiiiice.
Anyway, I whipped up these mitts out of a hank of Noro Cashmere Island. Wonderful stuff.
They don't match at all though. I was going to buy a second hank to try for 2 matching pairs but I kinda like the mismatched look. They were super quick to knit so I may grab some more of the yarn to have on hand for gifts.
Well, DH just got home and we have a date for some internet gift shopping. Gotta run.
