It has a lot to do with me hating people taking pictures of me. But I promise I'll get one up soon.
If all you care about is knitting, feel free to ignore the first half of this post.
|Vyvyan's first camping trip|
Luckily, once Grandma came with us the beach was no problem.

He's not good at camping yet, I guess.
By the campfire I worked on something new and exciting...
Except for a sizing issue (they're much too tight) they came out very nice indeed.
I guess I should have factored in the fact that I was going to be doing a stranded pattern and casted on maybe 36 stitches instead of 32. However, this was my first ever mitten design and I had nothing but my hands to work from and I think they turned out pretty darn well.
Also, if I were working on these at home I would have done the cuffs on 7's and then brought it up to 9's for the body of the mitten. But I didn't bring my 9's with me, so I'll just have to find someone with small hands. Who lives somewhere cold. Who likes skulls and crossbones. And who will wash wool mittens properly.
So if you know anyone who fits the bill, just let me know and I'll knit up the second mitten.
As it is, I think I'm using the first mitten as a gauge swatch for the Very Exciting Skully Yoke Sweater I'll be making one day.
So now we're home.
And I recieved a package in the mail!!!
|Yay, Koigu for my beekeepers' quilt!|
|It fits him.|
Happy knitting ya'll, and I'll be back to my regularly scheduele programming by Sunday. Ya know, since this was supposed to be WIP wednesday, and how i didn't work on my super stitches knitting project and all?? yeah.
