So I have decided the correct time to make winter items is in the summer, and summer items is the winter. That way by the time you are ready to use it, you are not still sick of looking at it on the needles.
Like the wrist warmers. I started before Christams, had one done for Gram to open, and finished the second in June. Plus my guage changed on the second one (note to self: complete second item of pair as close to finishing the first as possible).So now I am on to legwarmers. Something for the fall that will actually be ready by the time it starts to get cool. And they are hot pink.
