Benjamin, making himself useful.


Thanks Jen!

We LOVE Click Clack Moo as Baba collects cows. Now we have our own copy. And the sweater fits Ben fine; not having buttons helps.

Working on the decreases for my first-ever mitten. It looks like it will fit fine, although I had to frog it twice--once when I put the extra gap stitches for the thumb on the stitch holder (corrected thanks to some fine folks here) and again when I realized the decrease in the pattern was going to make the mitten too short.

Then again, I have freakishly long hands (especially my middle finger), so it's been helpful to do my own thang on the decreases. It might end up looking weird, but at least it will fit right.

Glad it fits!

And how can you not love unionizing cows? And neutral party ducks?

Also, I love George Nicholson. Startled by his Furry Shorts is my favorite since the first one, and we get a new on in May!

And Wrede's Dragon series is a long time favorite.

Let me know what you think! I think

Hmmm, I guess I'll send you just the links through email since they don't appear to have worked here.
