zombie squirrels

As promised, I hereby present some squirrelly progress:

I'm just upto the thumb placement.

The thumbs in this pattern are knit in by moving the stitches above the placement line onto waste yarn after knitting, then casting on the same number of stitches in the next round.

When it comes time to knit the thumb you then pick up the stitches from the waste yarn, and the cast on edge to knit out from.

The squirrels are definately cute, but I think perhaps I've been looking at them too much - they are starting to look like zombies to me! eek!

Today I've baked some ANZAC biscuits (from the essential baking cookbook) to distract them - just incase they come after me. =)

besos =)

  5. Squirrels are scary little rabid critters - so I'm not surprised you're having nightmares ;) Nail 'em down, I say! Mittens look wonderful as ever - and like the sound of those fresh Anzac bikkies :)
