Tiny fairisle mittens project

2014-12-06 16.35.28

So I bought myself a cute cute fairisle knitted scarf from a charity shop for 50p.  I imagined myself looking all GAP Kids and No-Efforts-Chic in my new accessory.  Anyway, it was a bit musty so I chucked it in the washing machine.  Big Mistake – poor scarf shrank and turned to felt… I was sad.   But then I remembered all those great felted-jumper patterns on Pinterest and realised the opportunities!  Cue some nice scissor and sewing time and VOILA we have The String of Tiny Christmas Fairisle Mittens (snappy, I know).

I have strung it up over my knitting books (and underneath Husband’s ludicrous board-game stash shelf).

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Shining boy

Puff and I had a lovely afternoon putting the Christmas tree up.

That is, he was meant to be asleep (and I was meant to be knitting) but he decided against that…

That is, Husband and I were meant to have already put the tree up but Husband now has flu and is in bed, so Puff and I are holding the fort.

I would like to draw your attention to Puff’s excellent attention to detail on the lower branches (how many baubles is too many??).
