Yes, this is fingerless, or should I say the first one of two. I’m so proud of it. After looking everywhere for a good and easy pattern for a glove without fingers I decided to make one up myself and look at that, it fits and looks good. Miracles do happen. I love it. Did you think I could knit something without a beloved cable? No way. I’ve written everything down and I’m coming along with the left hand, so let me know if you want the pattern and I’ll try to write it up. Does anyone know how to write a good knitting pattern?
We’ve been baking.
Don’t these look scary? Thanks to some fun sprinkles I bought in the States this summer we made some really colorful ghosts, pumpkins and cats. I have two very good little bakers on my hands. Oh my waistline!!
Speaking of my waistline, I have a question before I get back to my party preparations and my second fingerless. George Foreman, your grill is great but…. why can’t you design and sell a portable liposuction machine. A grill is good, George, but a liposuction machine for home use is better. My thighs whould thank you.
On the fitness front I’m up to 23 minutes of non-stop jogging three times a week. I went this morning and had a slight bit of knee pain, but I think it should pass if I keep up with the one-day break in between runs.
One last thing for those of you who live in Berlin. There is a new craft store at the end of the Wilmorsdorfer!! It’s called Idee and Alida and I were the first customers to walk through the doors when they opened for the first time yesterday. I could literally move in to that place. They have everything a crafty dreams about, and I’m afraid I’m going to need some really strong restraining belts to keep me from walking there and drooling over the yarn and goodies everyday on my way home from Alexander’s kindergarten. Oh, the problems we crafties are forced to confront on a daily basis.
