It's got to be some kind of record that I'm actually posting in a semi-monthly fashion on this blog. That's not to say though, that I haven't been thinking about it, or that I need to do a blog update.
So with the little guy tucked away for a nap this afternoon, I've finally had a chance to download some photos from my phone (apologies for the quality in advance!) and am settling in to let you know what I've been up to.
First up - mittens! It's sickening hot here so I'm happy to say that these were finished off in June in advance of my parents visiting. They're actually Dad's birthday present from last September - oops! But I was a bit annoyed with the crochet finishing so I did put them off for quite a while. Sadly, the Habs were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs early.
Montreal Canadiens Mittens - pattern by Corina Irving. Knit in Cascase 220 using the Basic Patons Four-Needle Mittens pattern in size large as the base. Modified the cuffs to have a band of red at the bottom like on an actual Habs jersey.
Dad loves them, and they're big and warm for his hands. Since he goes to a lot of CFL football games, and those games are outdoors in Calgary and right into November, I think they'll come in super handy for him.
