MyWristie-Cuffs© #1 is done!

The second one is already almost half completed.  I did the Elizabeth Zimmerman double strand cast-on, and then the Cat Bordhi join this time, to eliminate the sloppy “join in the round” I got on the first one. I’ve included links to YouTube videos to help out~ E. Zimmermann can be found on InterweaveVideos Channel; the Estonia Cast-on is very nice.

I got the ends woven in, so it’s not noticeable at all now.

I had a chance to catch the Mail Lady out on her route today and was able to  present her with her Mail Lady Fingerless Gloves.

I glanced at her hands, and was happy to see hers are about the same size as mine~whew!

It’s finally feeling like things may return to normal again; the holiday rush is on the downside now and we can relax a little. No more wishing for more hours in the day, or fast trips to the coffee pot between phone calls.

Most have bought what they need for gift projects and are in no hurry for personal items they want for themselves now. The frantic last-minute shoppers dwindle and time can slow down for a change. These are the people I love gifting little items to-they have worn themselves out worrying about everyone else, and now it’s time to give back a little, make it all worth it~

DH and I talked about going to Lake Geneva after the holidays, set a spell at the bar and look out over the lake, while sipping Pinã Coladas…

Back to Woodland Ferns and Lace #3,  a present for DD32- sorry, Darlin’, it’s going to be a little late this time.

I got caught up in my memoirs… you understand~

Laterz~
