A couple of weeks ago Kate and I were reading The Mitten by Jan Brett. It's such a fun story and anything by Jan Brett makes me smile because the illustrations are so wonderful!
I was thinking while I was reading that I had some left over chunky yarn from the football hats and that maybe I could knit a big mitten to go with all of the plastic animals that the girls have accumulated over the years. I thought maybe Kate would have fun playing out the story. I asked her (no sense trying if she wasn't interested) and she liked the idea.
Well, I couldn't figure out the thumb, so I just kept knitting until I got this. For play I figured it was close enough. Kate wished there was a thumb and I explained that she could have it to play with that day, or she could wait until I could get some help with the thumb.....I finished it that day. :)
I don't know how much she will play with it, but I know she has a little bit already. It might make a good road trip toy. We'll see.
I'm almost finished with An Everlasting Meal and I picked up this stack at the library this week. :) We shall see what come of these. There are some really cute dresses that I would love to make for Callie and the Reinvention book has some great ideas too.
And I may read this to help me along with the next few weeks. I bought it years ago at Goodwill and have never opened it. I need some motivation!
I'm looking forward to visiting Ginny to see what others are knitting.
