We're just finishing up a bit of schoolwork this week and will be at our half-way mark for the year! Time for a much needed break! The girls decided to make a gingerbread house one afternoon this week. It turned out very cute!
I've been busy with several projects that I hope to have done by Christmas. The brown mittens are for my sister-in-law. I used Red Heart yarn (which, quite honestly, I snobbishly have refused to use in the past) and was surprisingly pleased with the feel and outcome. I think they will be warm and very durable; they can be thrown in the washer and dryer without worry! I am making the cream colored pair for Kierra out of Loops and Threads Impeccable. Surprisingly, this yarn is a pleasure to work with too, and I think they will be a very serviceable pair of mittens for her. I'm using my favorite pattern, here, although I do change the top of the pattern so it doesn't come out quite so pointy.
