I'm knitting mittens for a couple of friends, starting with a plain black pair out of Moda Dea Washable Wool. (Pattern from the trusty Complete Book of Knitting.) I was working away on the first mitten a few evenings ago when I discovered that my fingers were turning black! (I'm a little slow, so my first thought was, When did I read the newspaper? Pesky ink...)
In other winter news, Mooky hates the snow and is therefore bored out of his gourd. He continues to love his catnip taco, though.
