...and for Abigail! I had such fun knitting for Ceilli last week that I just couldn't resist knitting for the daughter of another one of Stephen's office buddies, Abigail, this week. And that's how these cute little piggies charmed their way onto my needles ;0)
The pattern is Spilly Jane's Piggy mittens and the yarn is Knit Picks Shine Worsted. I was worried about running out of yarn (I only had one ball of each shade) so knit the rolled cuffs in a lighter shade of pink which turned out to be a good thing because by the time I finished the second snout, there were just a few yards of the darker yarn left! I used it to knit a striped I-cord to make sure these little piglets don't loose each other and by the time I was done, there was no yarn left, just cute little mittens. Oh how I would have loved these when I was a wee one. I hope Abby loves them too and that they keep her little hands nice and toasty in the cooler days ahead...
And then to top it all off, there was homemade apple and sugar pie! A perfect end to a perfect weekend.
Martha would have been proud ;0)
