I guess I'm guilty of it, too. Marlene kindly pointed out to me that I'm an enabler also...and here I thought I was just blindly following everyone else. Who'd have thunk it? [g] I'm just thinking how great the community of knitter's are, to share ideas, patterns, trials and tribulations, etc...we're a very thoughful bunch and I'll thank everyone now, for your, ahem, enabling.
Thanks also to Maureen of Irishknits, for directing me to pics on what it looks like on the inside of a thrum mitten, courtesy of Yarn Harlot. I've never made a pair of thrum mittens before, but they are on my list and I was very curious as to what it would look like on the inside.
I'm still waiting on my Koigu to finish up Charlotte, so there isn't any news on this project.
I am making nice progress on the Field of Flowers shawl, though. Twenty more rounds (approx. 512 sts. per round, so far) and I'll be starting on the edging.
Because of the shawl being bunched up on the circular needle, I can't even really tell what the heck it looks like, so I'm anxious to get this done. From what I can tell, it's going to be pretty. You'll just have to trust me on this. [wink, wink]
There also seems to be several Knitting/Diana Gabaldon fans out there. I've been asked my view of The Fiery Cross, but as I'm only on page 57, it isn't viable.
I will recommend a book, The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. It is a very melancholy story, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and it should help pass the time while waiting for Gabaldon's next Jamie/Claire story.
