Memorial Weekend

>> Friday, May 22, 2009

I am heading out to the high desert this weekend to go land sailing. It is exactly how it sounds, we essentially are sailing (with wheels on land) across the desert. A lot of planning and preparation to go to the middle of nowhere with two small kids and camp (thank god for travel trailers).
My 'big' project right now in between mitts and such is The Hedgerow Coat by Interweave Knits.
I have found out that I like having one big project, like a sweater, and one small project, this month it's mitts, going at the same time. I think it is because I love the process of knitting but I also like the accomplishment of finishing things. My days can be crazy between my paycheck job and the kids and sometimes I feel like I'm torn in so many directions and so having a finished knit gives me a sense that at least I finished something :)
I have four pairs of mitts to share when I get back and hopefully this weekend I'll finish more. I hope you all have fun this holiday weekend and I'll check in when I get back!
Check out some more mitts-Gigi's lovely fetching.
