More Miters.

First off, thanks for all the overwhelmingly generous comments on my last post. I think I had an all-time high of 48 comments! I'm glad everyone liked the scarf--I adore it too, and your enthusiasm assures me that my pal will love it.

We're still dealing with the office issue. Taking it slow, considering the options, etc., etc., etc. That event was really just one in a series of events for me lately--the week before, my husband was diagnosed with Type-II diabetes, this week my mom was hospitalized with pneumonia.


So I have been knitting miters.


Slow, steady, predictable miters.



Colorful, cheerful miters.


Miters, miters, miters.



Still not nearly enough miters.


Fun to photograph miters!

I have been thinking and all of the recent developments in your life. I hope by now things have settled down a little. Most things are not as big as they seem at first and I hope that is the case for you. The mitres are beautiful, keep plugging away at those.

Tara said...

Everytime I look at all your pretty miters I regret my decision to do mine in all blues. I can always make another one I guess, huh?

Great meeting you yesterday!

Nora said...
