The first one wasn't big enough to stitch to the arm opening, the second was going to be as long as a monkey's arm. The third I'm not even going to talk about and the last one was just plain laughable. I think I've got the problem licked though. Tonight I will cast on yet again to fix that. Then just one more sleeve,hood and pick around some edges. I really like how this yarn is knitting up. It is Araucania Nature Wool a beautiful kettle dyed yarn distributed by Knitting Fever made in Chile. I bought it from the LYS in Superior, WI.
I love to put stuff in the county fair, it is really fun to do and gratifying to win something for my obessed habits:)
The mittens are felted with Lamb's Pride Worsted, I forget the color name.
I made a quick trip to the Cities and visited my sister and her boys. Isn't she a cutie? Theron is too.
There was mini golf.
And of course swimming.
On our way home we decided to go a different way and stumbled across an apple orchard. Check it out here. It was fun to do with the kids but it took a little longer to get home.
Back to the old grindstone. School starts next week! Yay!
