Random witticisms of a confirmed fibre-holic

For those of you who regularly read the Yarn Harlot's blog you already know that she's decided to make a sock a day until christmas. Yup. That's a lot of socks. If you aren't aware of the sheer force of nature which is the Yarn Harlot, go to www.yarnharlot.ca you won't regret it! She's a knitting dynamo from Toronto who's written 3 hilarious books.
Anyhow. I've decided as my stash is my witness, I am going to make mittens! Yes, pairs of mittens! You who know me well are very much aware of my suffering from SMS (second mitten syndrome) This will be a challenge but I'm sure I'm up to it. I'm going to do my darndest to make a pair a week until new year's day. Lets see, that's 8 pairs? Gee sounds measly but on top of all the christmas stuff which needs to be done this year, 4 housecoats, 9 pairs of slippers, 1 pair of gloves, 1 handbag, several scarves and hats (at least 10 sets), and 2 pairs of legwarmers, this is not going to be easy. (you know, it didn't seem like a lot until I typed it all out. Am I out of my tree? I'll never finish!!!) Each and every one of those pairs of mittens will be only from stash yarn and will be donated to Keeping Kids Warm. (www.keepingkidswarm.ca)

I'm beginning to think Stephanie's saner than me that's for sure, a sock a day....
