So for the past 9 wks, I have been MOVING. Since hubby & I moved to another state it's been just the two of us packing and moving boxes in the mom-mobile. This past weekend was the last weekend for moving. We really hustled to finish. Then, Mon & yesterday I was washing laundry & dishes, and unpacking like a fiend. This morning I woke up and my joints, muscles, and feet are getting their revenge. Everything hurts! (I think this means I'm getting old.) BUT - for every negative, there is a positive. And the positive is that I curled up in a blanket and started reading Eat Pray Love and knitting the Jasmine Lace Fingerless Mitts. A little down time is just what the doctor ordered.
Let me just say, that I'm only in Book 1 of Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert and already am smitten with this book! I adore her writing style and sense of humor as well as her candor. My goal is to finish the book so I can go see the movie with the goils!
Here are the mitts I started:
I'm knitting the Jasmine Lace Fingerless Mitts by Adrienne Fong in Regia Color 4-Ply (Classic Brasil Color) for my mom's birthday. I'm also making her a batch of my hand lotion for her to go along with the mitts.
Now all that's missing is a foot massage and some chocolate! ;p
