The best laid plans...

I've thought of another knitting project that I MUST do soon. Mittens! For Little J. The ones he had last winter have mysteriously lost one of their pair. He and I went outdoors this afternoon because he wanted to play in the snow. He was fine for five minutes of so, but then he fell down, had snow all over his hands, and came crying to his mommy b'cause his hands were cold and wet. We immediately went inside so I could get him dry and warm, and guess what? He wanted to go back outside again!

I was looking at the pair of socks that I made for him, and I think that yarn (Opal sock yarn) will work up for mittens too. They won't be too think...but they will be warm.

and to finish the quote:

...of mice and men, often g'ang astray.

Don't worry. You are neither a mouse nor a man!

True...but it was the little voice in the back of my head. Little J needs these _now_, but if I start this project, what else will I not get done?
