Izzy now has a PAIR of mittens that match her hat. They were super fun to knit up for her. She recognized what the first mitten was while I was finishing up the hand on the needles and started grabbing at it, which made it a bit difficult to finish. Then, she insisted on wearing the one mitten while I worked on the second of the pair. I had to track her and the mitten down every so often to compare so they actually would match. And that to a great friend passing on an adorable little navy winter coat, Izzy is ready for the cooler weather!
I finished knitting up square 11 of 12 for the farm playmat. I need to embellish it with some vegetables, which is on my to-do list for today. And then I cast on for the final piece! That’s exciting stuff, I tell you!
Hoping to make it to the local yarn store to spend a gift certificate from my birthday later on this week. I’m thinking some lovely bulky green yarn to knit myself a cabled hat and maybe some lace weight to knit a scarf/shawl.
