Judge: Isn't it a bit late to start Christmas gifts?
What I thought: Stop talking to me; I am counting.
What I said: (smiling) yes.
I love this Judge. He actually notices when I am knitting something new, or knitting the same thing for months in his courtroom. His wife has him well trained.
I started Monday morning with less than an inch completed on the second mitt. After knitting a row here and there at the courthouse, and Knittervention Monday night, plus some late night after-the-kids-go-to-bed-and-the-kitchen-is-clean knitting, I have five inches of progress, and have started the thumb increases.
I am starting to feel confident that the mitts will be done with weeks to spare, leaving only the scarves to finish.
This is usually the point when the floor drops from under my feet.
Today, it is all about the confidence.
