how many is too many?

another pair of mitts following Diana Sullivan's fool proof instructions. she has the best knitting vids
clear, to the point and without unnecessary chatter.
there's another pair coming up for the summer, as i cannot take the sun on my hand or else the scar will tan differently. just when i had finished the one year period for my arm ( same side) and was ready to bare my arms  for the summer (╯︵╰,)
have had some unaccounted for extra time because poor  sensei is in the hospital and we have no japanese class. wishing and hoping she gets better soon as she was a good teacher.and we all know how students do not like subs.

by domestic BS and minutia.feel that the last productive phase was years ago and that the mundane is absorbing me.had to gather courage to start operating the k machine again, underscoring my *fearless* moniker.
tested  some double knits great for creating fabrics that will not run when cut. do you see me going the cut and sew route instead of fully fashioned garments? 
 finally decided on half milano which is both robust and delicate if you get what i mean.
off i went after changing the sponge bar!! again!! using mora yarn 2/22  from bockens/klippans .i know it weaves great but didn't know its knitting properties.
all i can say is that once you get the correct tension it behaves great. until it finishes.
 well  i can color block the pattern  ಠ ಠ said she.

have this wonderful cashmere, it's thinner, but it won't matter.
and guess what? once i started knitting  again after 300 rows i knew i wouldn't have enough (,╯︵╰,)
and no re ordering bcse these are mill ends.
my only option is ordering more mora.have e-mailed the company and see how long it takes bcse they order on demand.

there's not much i can do except have a glass of wine.

and the beat goes on and on

this morning. the park was glorious.lots of people strolling under the snow and having a childhood time.

came back to finish my sewing. have to hem it
and source the buttons.haven't seen anything
appealing so far.the trade offs of leaving a big city.
