    1. Ohhhh, Kate was the first out of the gate

      Ten???? I don't see ten. LOL LOL

      Fashion Statement, how do do ya spell Catastrophe ?????? :^)


  3. Love the mitts. Thanks for letting me try them on.
    BTW, do you change your nail polish to match your knitting or your knitting to match your nail polish. :-)
    You have quite a list of project here.

    1. Betty, this is a very good question, hmmmmmmm, let me think.

      This time 'it' just happened! ! ! ! !

      yes, Betty, there's seven, however, last month at this time there were thirteen of 'em. So I am making some progress. :^)

      Love your Wholehearted Shawl.


  4. Cute mitts! I like the variety of your seven WIP's: two sweaters, two shawls, two pairs of socks and a pair of mitts! I love the concept of the "short rows" shawl.

    1. OMG, Anna Marie, you're absolutely right! EVERYTHING is paired up,
      2 shawls
      2 pr sox
      2 sweaters
      2 mitts to = a pair
      How cool you are!

      I'm with you re: short rows

      hugs to ya, gal

  5. You are definitely making progress on that list of WIPs! I'm loving the fingerless mitts, especially the first pair, the color is so pretty and they look very smooshy (of course they would be, they are Merino!). Have a great rest of the week!

    1. Oh, Ivy, so nice for you take time from your new schedule to visit with me.
      Fingerless are just so wonderful to create. There are scads of leftover yarns just waiting for their turn to be picked up and sent to the needle.
      Fingerless Mitts Rule ! ! !

  6. You continue to be an inspiration!!! Thanks so much for the help with my shrug last night!!! I will be more inclined to wear it now. Just have to find the perfect shirt for underneath!!!!

    1. Paula, Love your shrug upside down or down side up ! ! ! !
      Just about any color will be workable with that colorful shrug.

  7. LOVE those blue mitts - especially with the blue nails!

    1. Since Camp Loopy is finished up and in the book, my nails will be getting more time for fancy-smancy bling! ! !
      Thanks for visiting.

  8. Aww, Gerry -- you never cease to make me smile.

    1. Evelyn, your knitting is simply wonderful. My brains spins with ideas and motivation when I visit your blog:
      I'm thinking everyone should drop by to see what you're up to.

  9. Love those mitts. Both of them. Too much fun!

    On a quick side note, I ALWAYS wear some version of blue nail polish, as its a good colour with my skin tone. I am 46 years old. A lady two weeks ago at a social function pointed to my nails..."Is it okay to wear blue at your age?"!!!!! Well, I was a bit taken aback, I must say. Never occured to me that I couldn't wear blue. I just looked at her and stated "I belong to the Blue Nail know, like the red hat society...same thing." And then I walked away....

    All Hail the Blue Nail Society!!

    1. OMG, gal! ! ! I am 72 and also belong to your Blue Nail Society
      small world isn't it! ! ! !

      Yeah, you ! ! ! Bet your response had her athinking !!!! :^)

    2. I like to think I liberated her! Maybe she was told it wasn't proper and now she has thrown caution to the wind! Good thing I wasn't wearing my neon green polish.

  10. now they are very Cool! Rachael xo

    1. If only our weather would get cool, Rachael.

      We've had a few less warm days, but those 90 degrees F days are still among us. NO! I;m not wishing for wintery snow, just cool days.
