I can actually finish something!
Pattern: Slithery Snake from Knitted Toys by Zoe Mellor.
Yarn: Odd bits of Wool-Ease (green and natural) and Red Heart (blue)
Needles: Sz 8 Clover bamboo circulars
Dates: early July-July 14
For: The Neph who turned 4 on Saturday!
Mods: Didn't do as many colors, went with a larger gauge yarn and needle, didn't follow the pattern exactly (as I seemingly can't read), was a touch shorter than the finished measurements.
Thoughts: Cute! Went quickly, though I was disappointed not to use up more stash yarn. Must find more uses for it.
Also: There is a minor error in the pattern - it calls for you to cast on 12 stitches, and then to increase in the first row to 12 stitches. You should cast on 8 instead.
There are also a few finished dishcloths around here (hey, if I can't do dishes, I can at least gather supplies for when I can, right?), but they are not really picture worthy.
I've been lax with giving you details on the knits in progress. Expect full updates this week - all of your questions will be answered!
And the kitchen? I don't want to talk about it.
