Slowly but surely…

   This is the first mitten.   

It’s a flip flap mitten that I heavily modified. The original mitten was not a flip flap mitten.   

My mom asked me for a thumb to pull back so she could use her phone. I didn’t think it would be good to keep a fair isle pattern with that thumb because of the hole I put it in, so I kept it solid.      My mom’s fingers are longer than mine so I had to extend the pattern that I had (which I think that the girl who made the pattern has smaller hands than me). I used a size bigger needles than it called for too. 

The second mitten is about 60% done. And then I have to figure out how to block it.

Do you want to build a snowman?

Last week it snowed and my husband cleared it off the driveway and the girls went out and helped. They built a snowman! And my girls are kind of obsessed with Frozen… so you know, we had to.

However now he looks pretty sad. My sister-in-law said I should put an icon out there so it looks like he’s prostrating himself. 🙂
