Let me own up to two things:

1. I watched a lot of MTV in the ’80s and was especially fond of a-ha’s “Take on Me.” (I own Hunting High and Low—and Scoundrel Days, too. On vinyl, even.)

Winter knitting

Winter has finally arrived, after battling its way through the unseasonable crazy-warm temperatures we’ve been having for the last couple of months. If you want to do some cold-weather knitting, but are tired of simple hats and scarves, nervous about thumbs for mittens and gloves, and reluctant to commit to a big sweater, then wrist warmers (a.k.a. fingerless gloves with holes for your thumbs to stick out) might be just the ticket.

And if you’re saying to yourself, “Hey! I want to knit more hats! And I have no fear of thumbs!” then this may be the pattern for you.
