Ask Poops, Please

Putting my two cents in.

My Photo
Location: Belmont, New Hampshire, United States

Born and bred in a small New England town, I am convinced that I know something about everything, and that my opinion matters. If only to me. Well, you'll see what I mean. And I love to knit, so you'll see what kind of things I'm doing when I should be vacuuming the living room.

Mitten Mania

In an exercise in stashbusting, I've been working on making kid-sized mittens. Why kid-sized? Well, for starters, it's fast. I can whip out a pair in a couple of hours, if'n I don't get too fancy. Second, they're great for using up bits and pieces of yarn: they take smallish amounts and the color combinations can be freaky because kids don't care. Third, my kids are always unable to find a pair of mittens on any given day, so the more mittens, the merrier.
These to the left are actually a very vibrant pink, but washed out some in the photo. They've got a distinct "50's Diner" feel to them. So I called this pattern "Bobby's Girl", it being the name of a local diner.
The ones on the right are a light ash grey with
light brown and purple seed stitch accenting. I
bought the two balls of Light Lopi to help use up
the grey Nature Spun. So now I still have plenty of the Nature Spun, and two partial skeins of Lopi. I see a matching hat in the future.

Now, I've got a couple more pairs to show off, but for some reason my pictures are taking
to load tonight. And as it's already after midnight here, I'll show more tomorrow.

But for now, I'm pooped.
