Acutally have gotten quite a bit accomplished and I'll add some pics shortly. I finished some mittens and then made the mistake of looking in Ravelry for mitten groups. I found a WONDERFUL one. http://www.ravelry.com/groups/i-make-mittens They have a thread/challenge going - to make 11 pairs of mittens in 2011. Actually there are 2 threads...one where pictures/patterns are posted. Another where they're posted and you can comment/discuss. I'm already on pair 6! Easily distracted right?
One pair I made doesn't count as I started them in 2010.
These were so much fun - even tho they're way big on me...from the book Mostly Mittens.
Since then I've gone on to make fun mittens, warm ones, difficult ones. check out the thread and I know you'll be inspired. And everyone has posted links to the patterns - they're all enablers!
