Glittens!

During the summer, Richard and I took our parents on a trip to the coast (he took our dads fishing). We stayed in a little town called Ocean Park, and on the road to the beach (literally, a stone’s throw from the beach) was a yarn shop (that also had a little restaurant inside).  Mom and I checked it out one day, and I noticed a pattern for fingerless gloves that were also mittens.  Kind of like a Popple for your hand!  She said she would make me a pair.

Here’s what she had to say about them:

Made from Denali color Rainbow (hand dyed sock yarn, purchased at Pacific Fabrics). I used several patterns to make the glittens.

Edit: Here’s a link to the pattern she used to create my “glittens”.

C is for Castle

Mom got around to completing another block (now it’s up to me to give her more to satin stitch) so here’s a picture.  She opted to satin stitch the windows on the castle, instead of having me cut out tiny strips of fabric for them.

Hark! An Ark!

Well, it’s not quite 300 cubits in length, but the ark is pretty much done!

Still need to finish the door on it, but you can also see rams and zebras on the deck of the ark, two eagles, a goose (looks like a Canada goose), partial elephants, mountain goats, and lions.  And there’s also the outline of a monkey on the rocks on the left too.

All that’s left is finishing the rest of the animals and the beach and the water.  No major drama with it at the moment.  Found some binder clips to roll up the excess fabric that’s not under the Q-snap, so it’s not getting in the way.
