Lets start with the finished knitting.
Pattern: Intercostal Mitts (Rav link) (The pattern was free when I started it, now it’s $2.50 with the proceeds going to Haiti. At least that’s what the designer is saying.)
Yarn: Paton’s Classic Merino, Black
Needles: US 4, 3.5mm Susan Bates Quicksilver DPNs
Started: December 16, 2009
Finished: January 17, 2010
Mods: The arm is only 5″, and I added 4 rows to the palm per hubby’s request.
The color is of course truer in the first picture, but here you can see the ribbing texture. Please ignore the bump around my wrist in the photo, that’s my watch.
So, after I finished these, Ladybug had her fifth birthday!
The cupcakes were not made from a box mix, and the frosting wasn’t bought from a can. I’m very proud of myself!
Look at all that loot!
And now I’ve got the COLD-OF-DEATH that seems to be making the rounds nationwide. Mucinex doesn’t touch this cough. But at least losing my voice for a couple days led to some really great jokes!
