I'm back on the knitting bandwagon... with mittens! I've even been to two SnBs - accompanied by my beautiful little man. Although he wasn't a very attentive date - he was found shamelessly holding (or being held) by other women!

Anyhoo, the mittens are from Knitting-and and are pretty easy. I haven't done the thumb yet and the red strip is where I've used waste yarn and will now pick up those stitches to do the window where your fingers can pop out. Picture's a bit dodgy, but you get the idea...

I've also finished four roman blinds for my lounge room - only taken 2 years since we moved in, and one year since I got the fabric. But the camera is flat so you'll have to wait for those.

Must go, Master Paddy is bellowing.

Nice work! Great looking mitten. Almost as good looking as your little man! He gives great cuddles.

Great mitten! Big squeeze to Paddy. The Smurf was my date for SnB on Sunday morning and he was giving lots of cuddles to other knitters too - I I still only managed to knit 2 rows. I was too busy gas bagging.

It was only a fling - honest! Ask Paddy, he'll tell you it didnt mean a thing ;-) But he does give great cuddles.

Im very impressed youve made your own blinds. And found time to knit as well!

What beautiful work ... oh, and the mitten is nice too ;) That little Paddy is one sweet boy!

Good job getting the blinds finished - I've made blinds before and - honestly - all those long straight seams - yawn. Look great, but ...!
