Here's what's new:
Little Boy Mittens
Pattern: From Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns sized for a 2-4 year old
Yarn: Red Heart Sport Weight (Kids or Baby)
Needles: Lion Brand US 5 DPNs
Dates: Cast on several weeks ago, both mittens finished Saturday November 26.
Mods: I decreased rapidly on the thumb because I was afraid that it would be too long for the little one. I hope they fit since they are a gift!
Thoughts: I LOVE THESE! They are SO cute and I love that the varigated yarn makes them look stripey! They were fast, and cute! I can't wait to make a pair for myself. I want mine to look like this (but mittens, not gloves - to save my life I can't find a picture of the mittens on the Gap website!).
I need advice on the bunny hat - it's been in this "finished" state for about 6 weeks - all it is lacking is the bunny face. I can't decide what to do. I started to embroider it with the floss in the kit and decided it would take me FOREVER to do with the thin floss. So, I have to decide - embroider it with some black acrylic stash yarn, or leave it as is. What do ya think?
Final thought for today - these are my favorite winter socks, store bought of course since I just started knitting! I'm thinking of trying to recreate them - this pair is a big baggy and I'd wear them more if they fit better. I'd embroider the snowflakes on of course.
That's it for today - I hope to have more exciting stuff tomorrow!
