Leah says … Aren’t they adorable? I’m not the type of person to swoon over baby clothes and toys and things, but these…? They have been making me coo and caw ever since I knit the 1st centimetre. The little thumbs! The little palms!!

There is a bit of an issue with the thumb on the right hand- the left hand is great, but for some reason the right hand thumb gusset didn’t come out the same. I even knit the right hand mitten again and it came out the exact same. I can’t wait to see them on the recipient, a two and a half year old sweetheart, soon to be a big sister!

Next I am thinking of taking Marri’s advice and knitting with cotton and linen, seeing as I really hate not working on a project. And I just found an easy and gorgeous table runner pattern knit with linen that can make a nice gift for my Momsie for Christmas.

My new dream? To move to Niagara-on-the-Lake and open a knitting store. And be a wine connoiseur. And act at the Shaw Festival. Happy Knitting, and Happy Long Weekend!

It was like clockwork- it is a striped wool- and when I finished knitting the right mitten, I was at the blue to start the left mitten, crazy, huh?
