WIP Wednesday March 23, 2011

I have finished the first Entrelac mitt. Well, almost finished. I haven't woven in the ends or blocked it yet, but I did talk my awesome daughter into modeling it for me.

 Looking good! I'm happy with it.

 Happy enough to cast on the second one right away.

I wonder if I can figure out how to reverse the thumb so it will be a mirror image of the first mitt? Hmmm.... (enter sound of squeaky gears turning inside head here)

When I was at Yarnies this morning, a couple came in with the cutest long haired chihuahua. They were looking for someone to knit a sweater for said chihuahua. I've volunteered. It's so tiny it won't take much time at all. And it's a girl. I think I'd enjoy knitting for a girl doggy for a change.

We had sunshine today. It was 54F degrees out. I actually got to sit out on the deck in the sunshine and knit. It was wonderful. The weather is supposed to return to cold and wet tomorrow. I sure enjoyed the sun while it lasted.

Live long and prosper. \\//
