|Addi loves her lamb--every night she reclines and has a big drink on milk using her little lamb as a pillow. They are the perfect gift for any new baby. I am a sucker for any cute little animals for my grandkidos. Can you tell?????|
|I have never been in a Knitting Swap before but I was in the right place at the right time to be picked as one of the 52 people to be in The Downton Abbey Swap. I did my home work this morning looking for Edwardian/ Victorian patterns. I found my knitted mitten and bracelet pattern. I scored as it is the original pattern from a book published in 1880. Now the terms will take me a bit to understand. It has some color work and there is no chart. Wish me luck. I chose this picture because I just love the head butler Mr. Carson and William. Who is your favorite? I can tell you who I don't like but I will let you guess.|
|Here are my February mittens--Robin would say technically these are not mittens but I love fingerless mitts. This Lucy's Sheep Camp was a dream to knit with and will hold up for years. Billie Jo has agreed to be a part of our "Taste of the West" club. Be watching for that. |
The best part of me knitting 12 pair of mittens in 12 months is that I am going to have 12 wonderful gifts to give away next Christmas. Want to join me in knitting some mittens??? They are a quick knit and really a fun project with all the yarns we have at Serendipity!! Come join Robin and myself.
