I think I've gotten into a bit of a small project rut but I don't see anything changing until after the holidays. I thought I was pretty much done with Christmas knitting, but as it turns out, I can always find just one more gift I want to make (or two or ten)! This is okay because I'm knitting for people I really want to knit for, but I'm craving a challenge! Oh well, there'll be time after Christmas.
Until then, I'll just plug away at the small projects:
for KUTO and Month of Mittens KALs
Yarn: Trekking XXL color 126 (doubled)
Needles: size 6 dpn
Pattern: Basic Mitten Pattern - Ann Budd
Basic 84 stitch hat on size 8 circulars
1.5" K1, P1 rib
Yarn: Paton's Classic Merino
The "Bob Mitt" has been renamed "Mitt".
I got to this point before accepting the fact that it was going to be way too small. It fit me, and even though I don't have the smallest hands around, I don't think mitts that fit me will fit a man. Oh well, they are now on the back burner for a while and I've begun new mitts for Bob. I'm trying a different pattern; actually it is a mix of a few different patterns. Here's where I am so far:
Jay's Boot Socks
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Worsted, Sable
Needles: size 5 dpn's
(oops, the picture looks upside down)
Felted Catnip Fishie
This got mixed reviews:
(click pics for bigger)
Ralph isn't sure at first, but eventually succumbs to the nippy goodness.
Rico loves the fishie!
Peaches Loves it; Ruby - not so much
Moogie and Ruby discuss the fish and decide - Nope, not for them.
Have a great day everyone!
