finally, something finished!
The thumbs really do disappear! Because of how the stitches were arranged on the needles, the lines up the sides are rotated a bit. I was going to block the mittens, but when I squish them around, the thumbs become less comfortable. So I’ll leave them as is. More details on my Ravelry project page for these mittens.
I was tempted at $1.97
But absolutely had to have this at half off and under a dollar…
Brand new, men’s xxl. That’s a lot of fabric! And orange is such a happy color. And those stripes are so happy… I’m thinking I’ll make some summer bag, maybe even two!
Dug out of the garden after 7pm, which around here is really really dark (the moon isn’t up yet).
In their lovely basket… not really. Came with some other stuff (a total Jefferson’s 1960′s style platter was the real find!) from Freecycle. For late dinner with baked cod.
Saw New Moon. With teenage girls. Boyo was in another theater watching 2012 with my friend’s husband. 2012 isn’t a movie I wanted to see, but I gotta say the whole teen angst and swooning girl thing around Edward was a little much… though I did like the wolf/native boy.
