Yes, I did type 'Brian' the first time. *sigh*
Bitch mittens reminds me of an online cartoon thingy that I used to watch occasionally...
Which reminds me of my own beloved kitten, who wants nothing to do with any of this nonsense. Either because 1) she knows I'm a total goofball, B) she knows that I am thinking about making her a cat hat, taking her picture in said hat and putting it on the internet, or 3) she has had enough.
It's about that time that I start to think about making my kitten mittens. I mean... I'm puzzling over making her a kitty hat... why not mittens? Or socks. Yes, I would take pictures. Of course, I would take pictures. *L*
Where was I?
I felted a swatch for oven mitts for Bitchin'Mittens. It was interesting to see how a 1 by 1 rib felted. Not good or cool or anything. Just ... interesting...
I tested the felted swatch to see how it would do when touching something hot this morning. It did well. I did not feel the heat from the smoking hot cast iron skillet at all. A very good sign. I think it's going to be felted oven mitts... assuming I can puzzle out a pattern.
Long trip for such boring news, huh?
Sorry about that, but there's no knitting news over here, so I had to do something.
/runs like hell
I was telling Cat about the hat I've been working on. It's going to be a birthday gift and it's always nice if such a gift can be sent on time.
This one will be.
Pattern: Official Kitty62 hat
Yarn: Cascade 220 superwash in a lovely mousey grey... color #816
Needles: Size 7 circular and DPNs
Mods: I added an extra row of seed stitch to the ear flaps and the ears. And I did not measure the length of the I-Cord.
It's a crap picture because it's hard to get a good picture of something that is mouse grey.
Don't believe me? Go find a mouse and try it.
Btw, the PMS says hello.
It was an easy fast knit that I will do again once the weather is cooler and I can think about making myself one. It's hard to love a wool hat when it's going to over 100 F outside.
Oh, and I had quite a bit of the yarn left over. Maybe I'll make the cat a mousey toy... or a hat of her own.
Don't you wanna make a cat hat now?
I made stitch markers for my KSKS person/pal/thingy.
I was at Michael's on Sunday morning and saw bead bracelets in their dollar bins. I loved the color of these. They remind me of beach glass and I thought they would work well for my sock kit. It was four little bracelets for a dollar. Three were seed beads and one was the larger beads that you see here.
Think six is enough?
