Beautiful knits

This morning, it was nippy nippy nippy. The temperature in the house was 62. I couldn’t help but begin to think about knitting, and about all of the lovely and exceptional knitting blogs that have fallen by the wayside. I began to look through the archives of See Eunny Knit, and suddenly, got the old familiar heart-squeezing regret that I am, unfortunately, not a prolific and detail-oriented knitter.

I’ve begun knitting myself a pair of endpaper mitts, and I’m using Shibui Sock “Peacock” as one of the colors–a yarn so glowingly lovely, I’ve been afraid to touch it so far.

I also looked back at my Flickr pictures of things I’ve knitted. And you know what? I manage a couple of very nice things a year, even recently.
