Tangled Tuesday: The Shoemaker’s Children Go Barefoot

A skilled or knowledgeable person commonly neglects to give his own family the benefit of his expertise because he is keen on selling what he produces or offers with the thought that he can produce one for the family later since he is part of that family.


My poor kiddos.  


We've had two close calls with winter and they are forced to stuff their hands into their pockets because I have yet to work on mittens.

Mittens are not difficult to knit at all.  A cuff, the hand, thumb gusset, the top.  

Easy, peasy.

It's just I'm in a cowl state of mind. After I made The Teen's cowl, I knit one for my mom.  Then I attempted a blanket that was met with mixed reviews of ugh so I frogged it and begin a cowl for myself. It is so intoxicating listening to the click click of needles as I do my seed stitch, not bothering to count rounds.  It's just me and my thoughts.  I rather enjoy this mindless knitting.  

I did find a pattern for quick knit mittens using Lion Brand yarn. I like the sense of quick knits that will turn out beautiful.


What's your favorite "Quick Knit" pattern?
