I finished my Bella mittens yesterday and they are perfect! They fit like a dream, they're soft and warm. I think they're my favorite thing I've ever knit! And, of course, you have to take a picture with an apple… duh!
Also swatched for my first sweater yesterday. I've changed my mind about the pattern and I'm going to make one called Mr. Greenjeans, although mine is going to be brown… (does that matter? I need more coffee…) This yarn is knitting up really nicely too. It's "Rowan Kid Classic" and it is probably the softest yarn I've ever felt! It's very light-weight too, this is going to be a great, light sweater!
Here's a picture of someone else's completed Mr. Greenjeans. (for you non Ravelers.) I just love it. It's been on my to-do list for some time.
So, my Will asked, for the first time, to wear his Pirate mittens to school… They're his! I made them for him! He should be able to wear them when and where he likes… Right? Then why am I so nervous that one of them won't come home? I can't make them again! I won't! He said he'd be very careful with them… I've got to let it go!
And, just for the heck of it, a happy picture of the little brother…
And in closing, just wanted to let you know that we had to buy a new computer. Mine died on Sunday. My honey hasn't reinstated my data from the old machine yet, so I don't have any photos past yesterday and no email addresses or favorites list (to visit my regular blogs) yet… I'm a little lost, trying to compile all that again, so if you're waiting for a response from me, better to email me a new note and I'll get to it asap.
Alrighty, I'm outta here… off to do more mommy stuff… Happy Tuesday!
