Things are lookin' up
I'm pretty sure I'm no longer contagious. It was a pretty bad bug, and I'm very glad to have survived it. My world stopped spinning for a few days, but the dust bunnies kept multiplying. I keep thinking I'll feel up to getting everything ship-shape once again (Ha! As if things are ever ship-shape in the Kingdom!), but so far that hasn't happened. I DID manage to complete my current mittens, titled (hopefully....as in, with hope) Things Are Lookin' Up. The kitty in my sketch really did look hopeful and sweet.
In wool, she looks kinda surly. As if she's looking up at something that doesn't please her. Or maybe something that smells bad. That's kitties fer ya. They're a law onto themselves.
The stripes (for those who are technically curious) are mock Latvian braids. They're actually applied as a surface technique after the knitting is done, by crocheting a line of stitches through the knitted fabric. Very fun.
These mittens are currently homeless. They would fit a small lady's hand. Available for a minimum donation of $30. to the Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project. (We're coming up to Kitten Season, after all.) Shipping included via Canada Post anywhere in the world.
