Hand Springs Fingerless Mitts - Free Knitting Pattern

Thanks again to Linda Welch for the use of her gloriously easy-to-read lace chart on her Spring Forward Socks Pattern, which make these mitts a joy to knit, even for those unaccustomed to chart reading.

I'd like to thank my test knitters and proof readers Bonnie, Donna, Jen, Katie, Linda, Sara and Susanna for making this free pattern what it is today! I would not have wanted to do it without you all! XOxo

I have had trouble getting the pattern posted onto my Craft Blog at www.recyclemicol.com so, please be patient. For the time being, you can access the Free PDF here.

(Pattern also soon to be added to Ravelry.com)

Happy Knitting!

Computer Ghost

There's a ghost in my computer.

I sometimes find emails. Un-opened from my friends in my Deleted Items folder that I know I didn't send there.

I sometimes get emails or posts on my blog from people answering questions that I didn't ask them.

I think someone is writing/sending/deleting things, but whom?

I have a good security system, or so I thought.

This is not good. If you've ever gotten a strange sounding email from me, or if I never replied and you sent something, let me know!

Yes, I drew this in Paint.net. It's a little computer ghost.

Since everything I say can and will be held against me in a little courtroom in other people's minds, even if I don't mean it toward anyone in particular, I'll resort to omitting the articles and just give you the titles.

Are All You Men On Viagra Or Something?!

Let's Artificially Create High-Risk Pregnancies & Multiple Births, Resulting In A Higher Infant Mortality Rate, Then Blame It On Poor Healthcare In The US!

Electing A President...Still Undecided?

Church...Who's Really In Control?

My Imagination Is Closed For Repairs

Trafficking Much?

Some of the things have nothing to do with personal experiences with friends or family. I just read about them this week on the news feeds, so don't try to figure out to what I am referring. Ha-ha. I have more titles. Some day I'll post them.

Eschew. Bless you!

You know, I often have something to say, but I don't write it here on my blog because it's not like it's a complete thought, really. I somehow think that if I don't have a whole article's worth of commentary, then I should keep it to myself until I do. I guess I've never been a 'short and sweet' type of writer, nor am I really very good at grammar. But, I love words. I love vocabulary. I love to read the thesaurus and the dictionary for fun. I tend to elaborate and amplify. Never mind that I could say it in ten words or less...it's got to be a paragraph for me, when a sentence would do. So...perhaps the recognition of this fact in my own mind will jar something loose. You may actually begin to see more frequent posts here because I promise to begin to try to curb my appetite for all things loquacious and...

Eschew Obfuscation.
