'tis the season . . .
. . . for wristwarmers, apparently! I am making a pair of Fetching wristwarmers, as is every other knitter on the planet, it seems. It's just such a pretty pattern. Anyway, mine are a hand-dyed merino from eBay, and it has greens and yellows, and, of course, blues in it, and I just love it. This was my first time trying magic loop, so the first couple of rows are a little messy, but overall, I'm happy with the way they are turning out.
On the current-events end of things, am I the only one feeling a bit conflicted about the execution of Saddam? Of course, he did terrible things, and should certainly be punished, but the stories I hear about people jeering as the rope was around his neck, and the images making the internet rounds . . . it all just doesn't sit right.
