|"Umm... I think Im good right here."|
We did a little bird-watching from the warmth of the couch. But it's hard to get any decent pictures.
I did managed to get some knitting in....
The Cruiser mitts are finished. And with the Antler Hat, that rounds out the present for Dave's 10-year-old cousin. Another one off the list!
The pattern was a freebie - and very well written. I added a little length to the cuff, but otherwise, knit it as written. Were I to knit it again - I would change one other thing. The thumb doesn't have an increased gusset - just a waste yarn marker where you pick up stitches. I prefer a proper thumb gusset for a better fit.
These were knit in Fat Cat (colour is Cloudy), so they'll be nice and warm for tobogganing. We certainly have the snow for it now... let's hope it sticks around for Christmas!
If the weather is decent tomorrow, I'll be heading up to the studio to dye some more yarn. In the mean time, you can get some for yourself - there's free shipping all weekend in honour of my birthday. Use the code HAPPYBDAY.
