Mitten Pictures

I present my finished mitten:




Another shot:



My mitten/gloves are not going to match for a number of reasons. The mitten cap on the first one isn’t long enough or snug enough for my taste. I think the first one may get a draft under it. The color changes on the thumb makes gaps in the thumb that I don’t like. It also isn’t long enough. If I like the second glove/mitten (I hate the word ‘glitten’), I may go back and fix the first one.

Yesterday, I really thought I had hit the jackpot with the butterfly afghans. Until last night when I printed them off and started comparing. They were the same pattern with different shades of yarn. That was annoying. I could always go through the patterns I already have and see if I can find a little girly one. Or make a pretty ripple afghan in little girl colors. I found all my white yarn last night and definitely have enough to make the butterfly afghan for one of them. I might have to buy one skein of the darker pink stuff. I know I have some really old (from my childhood) pink acrylic around here somewhere. I almost never throw away yarn. If I can find a way, I will post a picture here of it here tomorrow.

I’ve been giving my green headband a lot of thought, and I have decided to tear it out. I may restart it sometime with a different yarn. I just don’t think the green will look all that great with the orange or blue that I have. There definitely isn’t enough green to finish the headband.

Gardening season started for real today. I planted tomatoes and brussels sprouts. The tomatoes are Brandywines, Glacier, and Black Prince. All procured last year from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. Yesterday I ordered Mortgage Lifters and Amish Paste tomatoes along with some lettuces, other greens, parsnips, and carrots. The greens I ordered are Kale, Sorrel, Orach, and Watercress.
