I finally finished my mittens, and then the hot returned. It really is not so bad. Perhaps the only reason I think that is because I have these wonderful new mittens. I do love them, and it has only been a bit over a year since I started them. The pattern is Sea Mineral Mittens by SpillyJane. I changed the thumb because I think they are more comfortable this way. While the way they are done in the pattern (peasant thumb) is just so very matchy-matchy, I think I did well enough with the gusseted thumb. Now I just have to wait until I can wear them.
With the mittens done, it was time to dive into the stash. I was looking for yarn for some future knits, but more about that another day. At one point, I was going through the lace bin, and removed the handspun yarn so it could live with its own kind. Side note: I have a good bit of handspun at this point, and I am considering a NoMillSpunNovember. Anyway, I found some more lace in other bins, and the next thing I knew, I had trouble getting the lid on the lace bin. If that is not a sign to cast on for new lace, please don't tell me.
