I brought it to work to show some people who also love to knit and I was telling the receptionist how I have lots of ideas to knit some of these with different stitch pattern; cables being one of them. Here I was enthusing about the different cables and lace patterns when she looked at me and asked,"You really love knitting don't you? Here you are all excited about what you want to knit. I just knit for practical purposes but not you." Yes, I really do love knitting this much and I get excited just looking at stitch pattern books.

Sunday I tried my hand at knitting fingerless mittens with the magic loop method and it was super easy. This is what it looked like on the circular needle. You can find different videos showing how the technique is done; I especially like the one shown on KnittingHelp. Just go down to the section "Small Diameter Circular Knitting" and you will find the Magic Loop video.
