Here are pictures from my sister of the Swirly Mittens.

The thumbs ended up being a little too small so I'll probably add on to them next time I see her. I made them a few rows shorter than mine because she has much shorter fingers than I do but I guess I overdid it.  Really though, the fact that there is a right AND a left thumb is enough for me at this point in time.  Jenna reminded me of Elizabeth Zimmerman's instructions for an afterthought thumb in the Knitter's Almanac and I had my little mistake all fixed up in no time at Susanna's house a couple weeks ago.

A couple weeks ago already.  Whew.  It's been rough.  I had my first Physical Chemistry test and am gearing up for my second Biochem test.  This one is on metabolism and I've been a little overwhelmed but am making great studying progress today.

I cast on for the Circle of Friendship socks the other night while watching a movie but dropped one of my cast on stitches and decided it was too late to start again.  I hope to have time later tonight to try again but we'll just see how that goes.  In the meantime, I'll just keep the pretty blue yarn on my desk as motivation.  ;-)
