I Need An Intervention...

That's what I told sis-in-law today...

Do you think mittens and mitts have become the "new" socks for me? I do. First it was the Cat Mittens, then the Musica Mitts for my Big Sis, then the Meeting St. Mittens, and the Wintry Mix Mitts, and now? the "All You Need Is Love" Mittens from Freshisle Fibers of Manitoulin Island (can I admit I had no idea where that was? I didn't think I was geographically challenged, but apparently so!)

And as if that's not enough? I went to the Plow & Hearth Outlet yesterday and bought a handknit hat from knitters in Nepal. I am heartsick that I didn't buy the mittens that matched it. Now I must order them, and that's going to cost more plus shipping to boot!
Mittens and mitts, hats and cowls...

I guess I'm all about the small items, the short projects, the portables.
(Oh and that apparently I have a serious case of startitis again...)

Guess who else likes the latest kit?

The handdyed yarn is yummy...but I didn't let The Tonk eat it...

I think I need an intervention, what say you?

No, you don't need an intervention. Mittens are good projects. Your color-work is stunning.

Don't be silly. Not yet. Wait until you're knitting your 4,278 pair in August. And even then, you can send them to charity if People Are Talking. :)

You need mittens in winter! And that new kit looks so pretty. No intervention needed.

Girl, you have always done things intensely until you master them. Then you back off a bit. Don't worry it, no intervention needed! ;>)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
