Frostbite defenders!

I did it! I finally finished my mittens! They're a bit wonky, but I'm quite proud of them. If I made them again, I'd use a yarn that has a bit of a stretch to it. I used The Knitting Goddess' 4ply Merino Nylon sock, from my dear friend, Kate! She's awesome in every way possible. She also made me a scarf out of the same yarn, which is why I was creating mittens to go with it. I used Bonnie Jacobs' pattern: Mittens. I don't know if you can access it if you're not on Ravelry. And if you're a knitter/crocheter/spinner/weaver/dyer and you're not on Ravelry, join now. You'll thank yourself later. 


I also made a hat! It was supposed to be one of those trendy slouchy hats that you see everyone wearing, but I guess I didn't crochet loose enough, and so the results were a beanie! It still looks great. I don't have a great picture of it yet, due to the sunlight not being here today. 


I've also started a 11 Shawls in 2011 challenge on Ravelry, and I'm not sure what I've gotten myself into. I've started two shawls, one I'm very upset at, and another, I'm merrily going on with. Hopefully, I can complete the challenge! I don't know what I'm going to do with 11 shawls though. Donate them? Two, I know, are going to be just for me, the first one that I'm upset at is for my Grandmother. It's her Christmas present, and hopefully I can finish it before next Christmas. HA.


In other news, I've decided to attempt P90X. Yes, I am slightly deranged. My husband did half of it and got great results. So now, it's just sitting there, being unused, and I have nothing better to do, so why not? I'm on day three of the Lean Program, and so far, I've almost blacked out once, and laughed my ass off at the fact that I'm terrible at sit ups. Does laughing count as an ab exercise? I sure hope so.
