It’s been hard to get anything done the last few days because every time I sit down, I get Max in my lap, cuddled up and snuggly. I know he’s cold, but I am loving the kitty snuggles. It does make knitting difficult though because he’s not a fan of me knitting while he’s in my lap. Also, once he’s in my lap, I can’t get up and get my knitting, or iPad, or stitch markers, or all the other little things I need to knit.
I have been able to get some work done on my second mitt though. I’ve got the thumb gusset stitches on waste yarn and I have a row of waste yarn (just under the needles, you can barely see it in the photo) marking where I’ll pick up stitches for the mitten flap. I might start the mitten flap a little lower than the waste yarn, but this way I have a line I can use so it will be straight. I have waste yarn on the first mitt in the same row, so I’ll be able to make them match.
At this point, I’m only a round or two away from starting the fingers. They are pretty fast to work, but they’re fiddly. Hopefully, Captain Cuddles will let me get them finished over the weekend.
I hope you all have a great weekend, filled with kitty or doggy cuddles of your own!
