One glove down...

... and one more to go.
This might be a problem, as I am severely afflicted with second glove syndrome (as well as second mitten syndrome). I start out with the best of intentions, I even try to combat my illness by casting on *immediately* for the second glove/mitten. Nothing helps. I have a half-finished Vinternatt mitten and the cuff of the second XO tipless glove on my couch as we speak.
But let's be positive, shall we? Look how pretty the first tipless XO glove is!! Ooh, Cashmerino... (For those who asked: this took me 3 evenings. One to slog through the 1:1 ribbing, one for that great XO cable, and one to do the fingers, which are a bit fiddly).
I can't believe the MTA decided to strike! I thought for sure things would get resolved. And it's freezing cold out, too. I feel bad for all those who have had to think creatively to get to work. I suppose I am glad that I live across the street from the lab. (I say "suppose" because I secretly believe I could've had a day off if I lived far away. Like a snow day! Reality is different though, and everybody has to trudge to work). Hell, I didn't even realize there was a strike until I read it on Marie's blog!
