I used the mitten pattern from Anne Budd’s pattern book, but because of the yarn I knit all rows and shortened the thumb a bit and made the cuff part longer. And of course like the hat she is trying to take the mitten away before it’s finished …

I finished the hat this morning … here is dd modeling (face blured to protect the innocent). She has not taken off the hat since I finished it. Here is a close up of the hat.
Now she wants a pair of fingureless mittens to match, so since I have a skein+ left fingureless mittens is what she will get. I just need to find a pattern.
I needed a different project … so I am making this hat, I am using Bernat Baby Bubbles in Bubble Gum. This is for the girl & I really think it will be a soft warm hat for winter. Also, the boy wants a hat for winter I have some brown yarn some where that will work out quite well for him.
11 Days till school starts!!
I really hate it when you don’t have enough yarn to finish a sweater. I started this sweater for my daughter back in like October, and because I am a serious procrastinator I am still not finished. Last night I finished the sleeves, and started on the button boarder on the front and the collar, I noticed that there was not a lot of yarn so I put it up for the night. This morning I settled in with my coffee, the olympics then realized I needed more yarn. I went to the closet and much to my dismay there was no more. I am using TLC cotton plus and the only place I can get it around here is AC Moore which is 45 minutes away … so it looks like this is going to stay a WIP until I have another reason to go in the direction of AC Moore …
EDIT: I found part of a skein in a left overs bag … we shall see how far it takes me.
Still making progress on the Aran Afghan. I think it is going to be a wonderful gift but man does it take up a ton of time to knit. I am not really looking forward to having to sew all the squares together … should have thought of that when I chose the pattern.
Also I have finally started to work on dd’s sweater. I am currently knitting the sleeves, and now that she is older the sleeves take even longer, but I am about 1/2 way through them.
I have also decieded on sweaters to knit for my nieces for christmas. For the oldest I am going to knit this Ballet Set, since she is in dance I thought it would be good for her. And for the younset one I am going to do make this Ribbed Baby Jacket.
I promise to post some picture of the sweater and blanket soon … I just have to take some. 🙂
