Mitten Day

Yesterday we had the first snowfall of the year. It wasn’t much but I am not the biggest fan of snow and tend to hibernate indoors until it goes away unless I am forced by outside forces (job, classes, etc.) to venture outside. Today, however, I have the option of staying in and pretending the cold, white stuff outside my door doesn’t exist. So instead of going outside, I am going to spend the day doing the first of the Christmas 2012 knitting.

Last year, Rob and I gave my cousins, his cousins, his step-brothers and their girlfriends little hand-knit stocking ornaments with gift cards and some candy inside. This year, we are going to do the same so I have a bunch of little mitten ornaments to knit up. I have some red, green and oatmeal colored yarn in my stash that I can use to knit them and then I plan on getting some cute little buttons (holly, snowflakes, whatever I can find) and sewing one on to each mitten to give it a little extra bit of cuteness.

Each ornament is a quick knit but when you start doing 11-12 of them, it adds up. Still, Rob is working late tonight, I have a marathon of Gray’s Anatomy episodes to watch (Thank you Netflix) and I think I can knit a bunch of these before the end of the day and get  a good head start to the Christmas prep.


About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
