I need another distraction like I need a hole in the head, but I've been eyeing those wonderful, amazing, gorgeous Selbuvotter mittens and gloves for awhile, and I succumbed. I ordered Selbuvotter (http://www.selbuvotter.com/book.htm) directly from the author, Terri Shea (it's also available from Knit Picks), and it arrived in no time flat, to complicate my life. This book is amazing- over 30 charted traditional mitten and glove designs, and I want to knit every single one of them. The traditional colors are black and white, but I feel no compunction about colorizing things up. However, my good coat is black, so maybe I will knit a b/w pair. And maybe I will cast on today. Maybe.
