April Fool's?

I have to admit when I read your April post I was stunned.  I, too, had only one mitten with no thumb knit in the entire month of April.  What was I doing, what was I thinking and you my knitting hero, say it ain't so!  I was so surprised to be in the same boat as you.

I promised myself I would get teenager mittens done in May but instead I cast on a sweater for me and a hat for my daughter.  I'm hoping that June finds me knitting for folks less fortunate.  I am a bad knitting buddy!

I blame the weather. Don't we all?

April's "assignment" was to knit mittens for small kids. I knit one (it still needs the thumb) and the cuff of the second. That's it. There was an 1160.1 (but who's counting?) road trip to North Carolina, and a day in New York, and a whole bunch of cold days and a birthday and. . . a bunch of stuff. But that mitten and a half didn't make much of a dent in the 200-g ball of yarn I'd hoped to use up. . .

May is mittens for teens. Guess theirs will be variegated blue wool as well!
