I finished my mittens! Yeah! These are for my sister in law, Nikki for a Christmas gift . I hope she likes them!

I used Smitten by Mission falls. This is the Dizzy Pattern. I made the front and the back differnent (top stitching) so they can be reversable if she wants.

I used size 5 and 6 needles.

The yarn used: Cascade Pastaza (50% llama, 50% wool) in 085 color (blue) and Cascade 220 in 9461 (green) and cascade 220 (rust).

I loved making these...they are so fun and simple.

Ever have one of those days when EVERYTHING goes wrong??? Well, I am currently having one of those days!

I am making some knitted projects for my new occupation - a knit designer for LePrissy Pets ( )! YEAH! A dream job. Anyway, I am making these items(its a surprise...) and something happened to them, so I had to throw almost 20 of them away! UGH! After crying for about an hour, and locking myself in my bedroom so I wouldn't throw myself off the balcony I decided to knit a basic knitted hat.

Sounds simple right? Of course it can't be simple it is a HORRIBLE EVERYTHING goes WRONG day! I was knitting...had 46 out of 65 rows done...beautiful...then, the doorbell rang. I got up to answer the door, getting the thread caught on my shoes somehow (without knowing it) and ran down the stairs. Got the letter, ran back upstairs to see my knitting, my cats and about 4 rows left on my needles! UUUUUUGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH! How could I not feel thread following me down the stairs?!?!?!?

I burned myself with the iron, blocking something, got a paper cut...boy oh boy what a day! Poor me! :(

Well, I thought I would make something for myself that if I screwed up it wouldn't be a earth shattering, I decided on arm is chilly here today and, what the heck...I will give it a try. And...guess what?????

THEY WORKED OUT!!! I love them!! My curse day is over I hope!!! Pictured above! to work on my second miten...from the Mission Falls pattern book Smitten. I am do Dizzy right now....for a gift for my sister-in-law (so...if I mess up no loss, right?) hehehe...just kidding (?).

My first COMPLETED SWEATER...well, kinda!!

I completed another Christmas gift...this one for my puppy Bob (the model above...shhh, he doesn't know it is his).

I used the pattern from: I did stockenette stitch instead of garter stitch, and I knit the first 4 and last 4 of every row to avoid the curling. I did everything else as the pattern stated, but I picked up 18 stitches on each of the legs to make sleeves. I stitched 4 rows (almost an inch) for sleeves.

It turned out so cute, I puppies first turtleneck sweater.

The yarn is red heart.
