Anyway, the second mitt will probably turn out totally different than the first. I may try to knit another pair and see which two match the best. It is a quick knit with worsted yarn and larger (5 or 7?) needles.
I did cast on another sock in fabulous Indulgence self patterning yarn, but forgot to take a picture, so I will show it to you next week.

Enough of all this rainy/cold/unpredictable weather!!! I'm ready to ride!
I did get to go for a short ride at the Gulf Islands National Seashore park Saturday with my running buddies. It was a great day for the first ride on my new bike. Looking forward to more rides this spring.

Now to decide what to start next!! I pulled out four different projects I want to start NOW.
I had a couple of those days where I was craving a new project and did not have the correct needles for ANY of them! So I cast on my Sycamore Vest and realized I didn't understand the chart. ;(
So I cast on Maine Morning Mitts using Ella Rae Classic Sand Art yarn from Tuesday Morning. I usually don't knit with dpns, but they were the only needles I had in that size. So, I am doing ok even though I feel like I have "sticks" everywhere. These go really fast! I am ready to cast on more stitches for the thumb. I think I will unravel the turquoise and start mitt #2 in purple so maybe they will match.

If I decide I don't like the scrappy side, I do like the other side and will turn them with the background fabric up.
I did have a great afternoon of sewing. I love string piecing.

I have been fighting the urge to cast on the next project. Trying to finish one thing at a time, but it is really difficult. I am so easily distracted. Squirrel!

Cowtown really knows how to throw a race expo!
My race was ok. I had run The biggest Loser Half Marathon in Mobile, AL two weeks before and I felt like I hadn't recovered completely. It was still a lot of fun, and it was great to hang out with my old friends.
