It is hot and humid. Makes for some crazy lazy days around here.
I should be working on my Christmas gift sweaters but it is too warm for that right now. So I have dabbled in mitten work.
A pair of Heartland Mittens have been cast on. I like this pattern. It's fun and much easier than it appears.
The colors remind me of Crayons.
I just had to cast on for this pair of mittens. I have been into the stash lately. With the price of fuel, groceries and utilities I have been stash busting.
Not sure whose hands these mittens will fit. The yarn is fun to knit. It's Patons SWS.
A friend of the daughter requested a pair of self striping gloves. Anytime a teen asks for a hand knitted garment, I try to indulge the request. (as long as it's a reasonable request:)
It rained.......I take that back.........it poured! With tornado warnings during the first part of the week. I did nothing but knit.
I love fall and I found this knitted felted gourd pattern. I went back to the stash and found these colors to make gourds. Okay, I admit the purple/plum gourd is not a real gourd color but I liked it. These were made in a day. A total of 9 were completed. They were fun and they're preparing me for fall. I will regret having knitted these when I'm on the Christmas gift deadline but.....oh well.
I stuffed them in my new Longaberger Basket. mmmm........I smell pumpkin pie.
p.s. Lazy days mean dog days around here and dog days mean Mr. Bettis is sleeping........A LOT! :)
