I shall call these Da Bears! mitts...well, I will when there are 2. Very simple pattern, very scrumptous yarn! I wish I had used a smaller needle on the ribbing, or maybe a 1x1 ribbing. It fits great but it looks sorta spread out.
Specs: Pattern - A free one here. But I made a change in the length of the ribbing. I wanted more rows.
Yarn - that scrumptious Rowan Kid Classic. OMG I love this yarn. I have one whole ball and two partials. This mitt took about 39 yds. (Yes I measured the partial balls...I'm just like that) The color is called Typhoon and is discontinued :-( so I'll have to figure out what to do with the rest of it that can be striped or something.
Needles - #6 dpns.
Time spent: Who knows, I kept taking little naps.
If you heard any strange squealing this afternoon, it was probably my mom up in heaven watching 'her' Bears win their game today. Back in '85, we even had to decorate the living room with pennants and posters to celebrate their season. My little, proper, conservative mom had a thing for Mike Ditka ...and for Don Johnson too! Her life would have been even better if she could have alternated watching the Bears with watching Miami Vice. LOL
It seems like just the other day that I was all excited that it was time for pre-season games and now the season is almost over. I'm not sure if time flies so much faster because I'm older or because I'm having so much fun!
I did make it outside today. Retrieved the newspaper and did NOT have to crawl back up the hill even though it's still just slicker than snot. The snow we got last night just turned into ice but at least I can leave little YakTrak marks in it.
I don't want the weekend to be over. I have another mitt to make and I did absolutely NO sewing as I'd planned. But the cats and I had some really good naps!
