I feel like knitting...

 Being sick for awhile and slowly recovering as are many right now. I do feel a lot better but still have a cough. Lots of down time means I feel like knitting. I fell in love with this pattern because it is just too cute and just had to make some mitts. I knit the little mitt on my standard gauge knitting machine. It took me an afternoon and I don't know why. I guess it was being fiddly. I do not use my standard gauge machine that much and had to set it up and oil it. It is very old, so old I don't even remember how old it is hehe. Anyway I knit the mitts flat and now I'm working on the duplicate stitch faces. As always I did not want to wait another week to order the yarn the pattern called for so I used yarn that I had left over from other socks and smaller projects. The brown yarn I used for the mitts was purchased at least three years ago at a yarn shop and the label is long gone. I remember asking for this yarn and the only color she had was this brown. I purchased it and when I got home thought... ok why did I buy this shade of brown. Well it finally has project. Did I say I totally love the raccoon mitt so far. If you want to make one for yourself you can find it on Knitpicks.com or ravelry.
I know this looks like the same picture I posted in the last post, but this time it is finished and ready to be mail out to my son. In the picture it looks a lot brighter than it does in person. It almost looks pinkish in the picture but it is deep red in real life.
Well back to stitching and movies. (^_^)
