The peachy mitts are finished. It's made with the same yarn, Elann Highland Wool and color as my Shadow Cable Scarf. I modified the pink kindergartener sized mitts slightly to make them adult sized. They fit my hands, which means a small ladies hand.
This photo was taken yesterday after Missy & I played with playdoh. Since many of the colors had dried up, I had to add water and knead them. There's still a tinge of blue/green after washing my hands. You should have seen my hands before I washed them!
Just to recap...
The pink kindergartener size is modified from the short purple toddler version I made:

I haven't gotten around to writing up a "how to" for these mitts. They're so ridiculously basic that you can just wing it as I did.
Do you remember the loopy piece of yarn on Missy's purple Pythagorean Hat? (boo boo seen here; Pythagorean Hat pattern here) Well, I managed to fix that little boo boo with a crochet hook and some patience. That was easy! Now I've got a more serious problem with her purple Asherton Toddler Scarf. Look what I found! A hole!!!!! And SEVERED yarn!!!!
See those two yarny ends sticking up?
Anybody have ideas for fixing this mess? Can it be saved? Or does the scarf need to be tossed out?
On a happier note, here's something I received today. Knit Picks Nickel Plated Sock Size DPN set. I can't wait to try them out. Now you'd think that I'd have time to knit on those days when Missy goes to daycare. I envision myself sitting on the sofa, watching a little telly, and doing a little knitting. That has never happened! I always end up doing house things, running errands, etc. Those are rather crazy days for me. Perhaps I'll get to play with my new pointy sticks tonight.
Have a sweater project you've been meaning to start? Join the Fashionably Late KAL! Perhaps it'll give you the extra little push you needed to cast on or dig out that WIP.
Okeedokee, my time is up, gotta go!
