FO: Druid Mittens

June 21, 2010

I do forget what Vogue Knitting ended up calling these mittens, the cover ones from Fall 2008, but the original name was Druid mittens.  They are highly amusing to make with cables, bobbles, and other fun things to keep one interested.  The Jamison Spindrift washes up soft, and makes a fairly thin mitten.  They were good last week in the morning when there was still a chill in the air.  So far so good this week, its been warm, but the rain is supposed to be coming back soon.  That is bad news as many people in Southern Alberta are still under water, and parts of our major Trans Canada highway washed away. 

This time of year is lovely however, when the summer solstice brings daylight past 11 pm, and a slight glow even after that.  I was up last night at 1 am to “freshen up” and could see the glow in the sky.  Its so much more enjoyable when we think about the short dark days ahead!  Its summer, and I’m enjoying all of it I can!

The new job is working out well, and one boss is certainly making a run for best boss.  Essentially since there are 3 owners of the company, there are 3 bosses.  Last week I was wearing my teal Rick’s socks in ballet flats, which showed them off to perfection.  My boss saw them, remarked to another co-worker that I made them myself, leaned over to get a better view, and commented further that they were way more intricate and detailed than anything his Grandmother had ever made.   That man has some good taste!
