The Sky Is Falling

Well not really, but it sure looks like it in our back yard!






I've managed to eek out another little something but this time it was for me. What should have only taken a few hours took a few days (one row here, one row there). What kept me going was the yummy yarn and the thought of toasty warm fingers ...







The pattern was free and if you are on Ravelry you can find them here.


No, Henny Penny, the sky is not falling ...






It's still in tact but my pride might not be after this ...



I am indeed smitten with my new mittens!

The mittens are beautiful -- they remind me of ones my grandmother used to make me and my siblings. And your yard....Well, it looks a lot like mine. But, I convinced my husband to grab a rake today. It seems like all of a sudden the leaves just dropped.

Our yard looked totally like that this morning - I could've sworn it was raining leaves! And you are just so funny - I love your mittens!

Cute cute mittens and I love the jump!
I just finished knitting a really cute hat, but can't post because it's for my daughter for Christmas. Working on a knitted snowman now~

They look wonderful. Great job!! Enjoy them. Our yard looks the same. We spent the morning raking but those leaves keep falling and the ground it almost covered already.

one day I will have a garden like yours so that I can roll around in leaves and jump about with lovely new mittens :-)
