becoming unraveled

I couldn’t stand that mitten to be so long in the cuff.

I threaded a lifeline through a row/round of stitches, then snipped one stitch in the row below.  I did visit TECHKnitting to reassure myself that it would be a big pain in the ass to try and graft the picot edge back on.  I picked up those stitches, then knit down towards the wrist.  I did four rounds of stocking stitch in beige, then an inch of ribbing in the black/charcoal, and then two rounds of stocking stitch.  I’ll let it sit for a day or two and see if it’s “right”.

Purolator came to the door yesterday with this:


Thanks, Airmiles!  My other old handheld mixer was crapping out on me, so time to replace.  Hmm, I could inaugurate the new one with a batch of cookie dough … I wonder if I have enough eggs?  Have to get groceries tomorrow.

The weather has turned cold and windy here – perfect autumn weather!  Had to wear a toque the past two mornings on our walk, and Sabrina even needed her red coatie-coat on Monday.  It’s been drizzling on and off all day today.  A good day to stay in and knit.
