{Second Mitt Syndrome In Action}

I seriously should have tried knitting these two at a time.  SMS hasn't totally set it, but I see it coming on the horizon.  I have the cuff finished of the second mitt, but I'm just not super duper excited about knitting it, ya know?

So I did a little other crafting yesterday afternoon instead.  It's not cheating if I'm not knitting, right?  I pulled out the Banana Republic tank tops that I bought at the outlet mall in Charlotte, North Carolina and decided to do some t-shirt painting.

I'm not sure if I'll end up keeping this one or selling it. hehe I love it!

Then today I went and bought some acrylic washable yarns for a couple of the kids' projects I have planned for Christmas knitting.

This Strawberry Pink Simply Soft is for my niece's Fresh Picked Cardigan .

And I grabbed a great yellow from the Vanna's Choice line for my other niece's Duffle Coat. (Ravelry link)

Oh, and I don't think I told you guys that I got the buttons sewn on the Hey Teach, did I?  They are totally cute and add just the right amount of whimsy for a little girl's garment. :)

As soon as I'm done my mittens I'll definitely be sure to take pictures and show you guys.  They're pretty darn impressive. :)


  1. oh man, i love that duffel coat! I might have to resize it for my 5 year old.

    Your Hey Teach looks great!

  2. Wow, you have ambitious gifting plans. Good for you!

    Love the buttons on Hey Teach. They are cute and great contrast with the yarn.

    Did you paint freehand? Use a stencil? Either way, I love the t!

  3. That sweater is amazing. The buttons make it totally cute! I love your shirt painting skills too!

    I'm getting kinda burned out on these toe up 2 at a time socks that I am making. It just seems that I will never get to the gusset and heel. I figure have probably about 20 more rows till I get to those sections, but it just seems like an eternity.

  4. That sweater is SO sweet! I love the little flowers on the buttons!
