I CO another pair of socks last night. I forgot I had this yarn. It's a one of a kind dye job that Ray at Knitivity did quite awhile back. It has deep purple, blue, green and hot pink. It's very intense. I think I'll call them Orchid Garden at Midnight....

I watched the film version of The Devil's Arithmetic written by Jane Yolen. Both are excellent. Very good story for young adults learning about the Holocaust. Violent enough for a good understanding of what happened, not too violent to cause nightmares. Take the time to read and/or watch the story.

Today will be mostly knitting mittens, I think. Another clue on the Mystery KAL, and I should CO the mittens for the NAS KAL seeing that Mariella will have both pair done before we even begin. So much for "knitting along"! forum smileys

    I thought it KAL meant Knitting A Lot :)

    just kidding.....
