I spent much of the weekend knitting. I had Monday off for Remembrance Day. I finished off this cute siamese cat who shall be called toy cat in remembrance of boy cat. I am still not thrilled with his face- I can never seem to get faces right on toys- but I love him anyway. It was made with a pattern from very very cute Fuzzy Mitten!
I also FINALLY finished these socks which I started last Christmas. You have seen them in progress on many occaisions -like here or here. I decided I must get them done for Paul's birthday this coming Monday as he had hinted that they should be his socks.
Then I treated myself to some new yarn from Zellers and started a pair of mitts from this mag. I love how these are coming out. I had to lengthen them a weensy bit because my middle finger is too long and I used a slightly smaller needle than required because that's all I had, so they are actually snug and perfect instead of gargantuan and yeti sized like my first pair of mittens- bless them. Speaking of yetis, my brother had the spookiest bigfoot documentary that we watched on the weekend. I believe the sasquatch is REAL!!! They showed the full footage from this famous big foot film and did a close up zoom-
It is real!
Now my brother has gone home to England and there will be no more Yeti movies or coffee breaks for a while- sniffle. We all had a great visit and we'll miss you!
