Took a break from actual knitting this evening to root around a bit in my stash ... looking at the "inventory" on my Ravelry page is one thing, but tactile/visual reacquaintance gets me thinking about what I intended to do/should do with various skeins. One thing is mittens ... while I own two lovely, cozy pairs of fleece gloves that have never failed to keep my hands toasty on our most frigid days, in reality (and in this climate) one should really have a greater supply of spares. So decided to e-buy a pattern I'd been admiring while it's still available ... double knitted reversible mittens (now that I've been working brioche stitch for my new afghan, I comprehend how the next stage, which is double knitting, works ... logical next step is to test that comprehension on something small)

So get to the buy-the-pattern page and discover that the designer is having a buy 2 patterns, get a 3rd free. So, since I do love her designs and learning to knit gloves is on the to-do list (after mittens), what the heck ... So, for my eight Euros, I now own the multi-size instructions for:

Autumn Leaves
Entangled Stitches

(yeah, those last two might look scary but I know how to do cables and twists ... they aren't hard at all ... it's just the joining and gusseting of fingers to hand that'll be new to me)

Now to give some more thought to just how to cram at least eight more hobby hours into each day ...
