Oh it was a nice Christmas! We took lots of pictures, but I think this one sums it up pretty well.
He had a great time. We had dinner with friends which was also nice. They live across the street from us so it was a short journey. Davey had a wonderful time playing with his friends there.
So we are just relaxing today – and all week. Today I’ve got to go to the library and make a quick stop at the store, but that’s it!
I finished my first pair of mittens last night. The pattern is called Lofty Wool Cable Mittens. I made them with Lamb’s Pride Bulky, and they went so fast. This is the same yarn that I used for David’s sweater. I had enough of the off-white leftover to make these. I was afraid that I was going to run out of yarn though. They took nearly 2 skeins. They are fairly long mittens and should be very very warm. The pattern had a stockinette wrist so that it would roll. I could just feel snow rolling into my wrists at the thought of that, so I did a 2×2 rib instead.
Making the bulky cables with this yarn did make my hands just a little sore, but not too bad. I love how the cables stand out so well.
Today I am starting some slippers which I am going to felt. They are supposed to go pretty quickly too. I’m having fun with a few quick projects before I go back to some of the other projects which are waiting for me.
Happy Day after Christmas!
Those mittens are so pretty & look so warm. Great job!
Beautiful! They are so classic looking.
Davey and his little superheros remind me of when Stephen was a little one. We have ThunderCats and Silverhawk toys EVERYWHERE! LOL
Those mittens are gorgeous!! They look so warm.
The pattern is no longer available. Would you be so kind as to scan and send me a copy. These look fantastic!
