huge mitten thumb and other events

Hey all,

How is everyone doing? It was a really cold day today here in the Toronto area. I was outside freezing with the kids and really needed mittens that close at the top! (I'm wearing open finger mittens at work- silly me)

I knitted my first mitten and the thumb turned out to be HUGE! It is my very first attempt. A word of advise for all you beginner knitters out there(like me), make sure when watching a video on how to knit something you count how many stitches the person did. My thumb was about 20 stitches longer than the woman in the videos. (lol)

In other news, my photo finally appeared on the Blacksheep and Ewe website!! I kept checking back and I had gone in October. I'm glad they posted it. This was from a craft fair I went to and they loved that I had used one of their scarf kits from the year before so they took my photo for their website :)

Me and my "Amelia" scarf :)

I'll post again soon!



  1. LOL omg that mitten picture made me laugh so hard. It looks soooo funny!
