I was lucky enough to test knit Kirstens newest design, Kawagawa mittens, even though it all didn't turn out the way I was expecting it.
pattern: Kawagawa mittens by Kirsten Kapur
yarn: Elann Peruvian Highland Sport (discontinued)
Something went horrible wrong:
My gauge was WAY off. I'm a very loose knitter, when it comes to colorwork.
The mitten was ginormous! I also didn't like the colors I've chosen. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the original mittens, so I'm going to knit a perfect pair sometime in the future. I'm not going to knit a mate to this one. Chalked up to experience, learning from ones mistake etc. .
I'm really happy whenever the pups are pooped out, and sleeping. Little Miss Margaret, also known as Busy Body, or Princess, sleeps on the couch, while Big Brother found a place between the couches. Both seemed comfortable enough.
And Denny, the other night, I found his bone hidden in one of my fiber boxes.
Sorry about the crappy photo, it was late in the evening, but I thought it was funny, because as soon as I discovered the bone, Denny came running, took it, and with I sigh (I swear) went to look for a different place to hide it.
