In the fun department, I am certainly having it! First off, these make me smile....immensely!
WeeOnes. Again, she honored a special request. Her normal "Fancy Goldfish" markers consist of 4 fish - these minus the one with the black markings. For some reason(?) I wanted one with some black on it. So....she graciously accomodated. I just marvel at the detail. Total whimsy - and they entertain me to no end!
Last week, as I was browsing patterns on Ravely, I ran across the "Monster" (ravelry link) sweater. BG saw it on my computer screen, and was quite interested. In fact "Granma make monster" were his exact words. NEED HE SAY MORE? .... I think not! That very day I purchased the pattern and ordered the yarn from knitpicks.
I have the back completed, and I'm teaching myself Intarsia on the fly. Really, isn't that difficult, but I readily admit the chart is an easy one. Such a cute pattern, and a total joy to knit. The color changes are just mesmerizing. To keep the weaving in of ends to a minimal pain, I am weaving them in as I go. I'll be back soon with finished photos, and Hopefully....ON the body of a 2yr old. LOL... but he's pretty opinionated, so we can only hope!
