I have 2 new colorways and I can’t decide which one I like best. In case you aren’t on the Notify list – the update has been done.
We got nuts for bananas around here. The littlest one especially is monkey crazy for them. Making a Monkey fart, banana colored yarn and fiber was just natural. I think I’ll make something out of this for the baby monkey child.
And of course, ’tis the season for the Grinch. This was inspired by the cartoon and my Dad. He’s not really a Grinch but he plays one on Christmas. I need to make socks for Dad so it just seemed natural that I had to make some Grinchy colorway. I started these for him:
Not that I have a whole lot of time. I have some awful socks to finish. I’m procrastinating on buying another skein. I weighed the yarn out and there is no way I’m getting another sock out of what’s left. I did buy some more of the worsted weight version – it’s only slightly less painful.
And then I realized that with all my mittens in the shop as samples, I have none. Zero. Zilch. I have one pair of fingerless mitts and that doesn’t always cut it. so I’m making some out of the same handspun I used for Baby Boogie’s bonnet.
They’re convertible mitts. I’ll finish the mitt part then make the little cap. In case you’re wondering why there are no fingers and it’s just a tube, the fingers in fingerless mitts, bug me. I find it restricting for some reason and mush prefer them without.
I’m so gleeful when I come to the green sections and the red orange sections of this yarn. I think I’ll be making a new set after the holidays. A pair that is all greens and orange reds. In fact I’ve been spindling that yarn in my spare moments.
