I would like to knit mostly from stash this year, which has a lot of diversions. One diversion was some Cascade 220 leftover from something. I started with the Summer Lace Shawlette from Interweave Knits Summer 2006 Sweet Somethings. Although it looks bunched up in the picture, it hangs nicely across the shoulders.
Then I was watching my friend Chris (she's also the new boss, but she was a friend before she became the boss and friend trumps boss any day) sit in her office wrapped in a blanket, freezing, teeth chattering, ice forming. Our office space is not particularly cold to me, but it is to her. So I decided she needed some Fetching mitts from Knitty, with longer tops to reach the first knuckles. I don't think she'll wear them for her upcoming wedding, but they should keep her fingers warm while she works.
