... it's making me think of mittens. Particularly Jamie mittens. I looked at some at the store and the problem is that they seem to be sold in sets with matching hats. He has a goodly number of hats already and needs no more. I just need the mittens. Preferably multiple sets of the same color. He seems to be too young for thumbs, thank dog, because I think knitting a tiny thumb, nevermind persuading him to use it, would be crazymaking.
So I think I'll go through the sack of worsted weight yarn, find a cheerful color, and knit him a bunch of little mittens.
And, thanks to the commenters, I'm also thinking about how I could get some plain wool to run through a dyebath of black walnut hulls. Sigh. I guess I could just place the KnitPicks order today and be done with it, or I could horse around trying to find something at my LYS or at JoAnns - maybe that Lion's Brand stuff?
Like I need more projects this week.
