I shall knit you, Squirrels!

Listening To: Givin’ Up, by The Darkness

Anyone remember back in the day when I started the Squirrelly Swedish Mittens? Well, I ended up making one of them and figuring out that I wouldn’t have enough yarn to finish the second. So, I forgot about them until a little while ago when a Fair-Isle mood hit me, and I casted on for them again, this time with different yarn:

Squirrel!

I’m using the yarn I salvaged from the Endpaper Mitts I tried to knit. I would still like to knit a pair, just out of a thicker yarn. This time around, I tried out some fancy Latvian Braid things. I messed up the first one, but got the second one right (they are easier than they look!)

Ok Squirrels, prepare to be knit. I’m planning on focusing on them at least until I finish one. Wish me luck.

And, I leave you with a Meme. I was tagged as a Rockin’ Girl Blogger by both Ruth and Lani a long time ago, and just kept forgetting to post about it!

Jennifer: She creates beautiful patchwork… everything! Plus, she has the cutest kids in the world!!
Dawn: I love the stuff she knits, and I think she’s one of the very first blogs I started reading.
Abigail: Hellllllooooo, have you seen all the socks this woman knits?! Plus, she’s my Cruising Buddy!
Lynda: Cuz she’s my mommy 🙂

Ok, I’m off to go work on my squirrel mittens. Night, guys!!
