november thirty

We all woke up this morning....

To see the first snowfall of the year!

It's so white and pretty. I love it.

Here is the progress on Bella's Mittens.
I love them. They knit up sooo fast.


Specs:
Pattern: Easy Ripple Afghan by SusanB (Ravelry Link)
For: Jordyn's Blanket (For her 5th Birthday)
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash in Amethyst & Orchid & White.
Hook: 5.5 mm (I)
Size: Toddler Length. Finished Size is 34.5” by 36” with 65 rows: 6 pink sections, of 6 rows per section. 5 white sections, of 1 rows per section. 6 purple sections, of 4 rows per section.
It’s 130 stitches wide.
Timeline: November 15th, 2009 - November 29th, 2009
Modifications: Followed pattern as published to my own desired length.
Opinion: Love it. Hoping Jordyn loves it, but can't see why she won't.
Her birthday is tomorrow, so I'll find out then!

Today was a rather chill day. I had some errands to run, so I took care of those in the morning and then came home, had lunch and worked from home all afternoon. I also spent some time today weaving in the ends for Jordyn's blanket. I can't wait for her to receive it tomorrow.

Tonight Jamie was a little bit late coming home from work as he had inventory tonight at work. I had fed the kids a special treat tonight, (McDonalds) as I didn't feel like cooking at all. It was easy and they really enjoyed it.

After the kids were in bed and Jamie was home from inventory, we sat on the couch, I worked on Bella's Mittens and we watched tonight's episode of Heroes. Bella's Mittens are knitting up quite quickly. I love them already. I cannot wait to wear them. Tonight I was able to finish the first one, except for the thumb. I wish I had time to knit a pair of these for everyone... that's how much I love them. I just simply don't have the time.
