hello! It’s definitely fall here now and I am enjoying it as much as I can. We don’t usually get much of a long fall where I live but it seems to be sticking this year, it’s amazing!

I’m still enjoying work, I’ve lost 10lbs since I started, so I’m pretty happy about that! Kids are doing good, I took my son in for allergy testing last week because he reacted to some food and his toothpaste this summer. He’s allergic to most animals and outdoors but no food! The doctor was awful but we got some answers, that was the good part at least.

Anyway, on to what I’ve been making! I crocheted a couple toys for a project called Toys for Syrian Refugee Children. I crocheted the lion and a bear, I wanted to crochet more but I lost a bit of mojo again. I’m happy to be sending something off though!

I’m also knitting again! I decided that I wanted to make myself some fingerless mittens from the yarn I purchased from MidKnit Cravings. I’m using DPNs and I haven’t been feeling too much pain using them, so I think I may need to invest in more of them so I can get back to knitting socks.

I have a finished glove! 😄 I used the Blueberry Waffles stitch pattern for it but other than that, I just winged it. I'm really happy that it worked out how I wanted it to and that I didn't have to frog at all once I got the stitch count figured out

I finished one mitt this weekend, I’m really happy with how it turned out, I can’t wait to have the pair finished! I’m using the Blueberry Waffles stitch pattern but no pattern for the actual mitt. Getting the stitch count right was the only small issue I had but I got it and had no problems afterwards. The yarn is fun to knit with, it screams fall to me!
