After my debacle with the gloves, I have put them aside as many of you suggested (Thanks for all your kind and helpful comments. I couldn't have picked up my sticks again if it wasn't for all of you!) and I decided to make fingerless mitts with a mitten flap. I have the one mitt done and will be working on adding the flap. I like the way it came out and I went up to a sport weight wool instead of a fingering weight sock yarn. The yarn is from Tess's Yarn and I love her product. It feels like butta! I ran across her booth at the last "Stitches East" convention that was in Atlantic City. ( I hope they come back again. Baltimore is too far!) Her color ways are incredible and she has wonderful patterns too. Check her out.
I stumbled across this tessellating pattern and I love making the little "fish" . It uses up scraps from the stash and I think it would be a great throw for a boys room. Check it out and try one-betcha you can't do just one!
Finally Oliver would like to thank all his Valentine's Day Buddies out there. He was very happy with his Valentine notes and hope that everyone enjoyed theirs too!
