Jesspants here, dropping by with your friendly neighborhood Sunday Night Knitting Report (SNKR). I’ve got a crafty ladies post-holiday season holiday gathering coming up in a few weeks, and I thought I’d try my hand at making cute, cuddly creatures.
look at that faaaaace!
but I like him anyway.
This owl is going to live with me. I’m not quite sure what his name is yet, but I’ve given him a home on top of my shelf. Lonely he shall never be, what with Kari’s hedgehog (called Harold), Corin’s kiwi (called Bruce), Brandy’s buffalo chicken, and a random assortment of other friends keeping him company.
He’s not quite as polished as the ones showcased in the original pattern, but I’d be willing to bet that she had a couple of lumpy looking ones before she got the hang of it. Owl Puffs will be a great way to use up some of the myriad of scrap yarn I’ve got lying about the house, and they are really easy to transport, too!
In other news:
DK really likes trying on my finished knits…
Lo and behold, I have finished the mittens and the scarf. This was my first pair of mittens, and I think they turned out FABULOUSLY. I love the shape, the style, and the finished product – they really turned out just about perfect. The variegated yarn made for a beautiful pattern all around.
The scarf was wrapped up in a little less than a month. The mittens, on the other hand, have been a work in progress since November. Ten minutes here, half an hour there, and at least two weeks where they were finished save for one thumb, I finally buckled down and finished them last night.
All in all, this was a very productive knitting week. I can’t wait to give Mom her birthday present!
On that note, I’m off to have a bath, a mani-pedi, and some yoga before bed.
Anyone out there finish a project over the weekend? Pics or it didn’t happen!
