Hurrying Up
I'm trying to post this very quickly 'cus Yannick should be home from work any minute. I'm rushing to finish the Sweetheart Mittens before either a)Valentine's Day on Monday, or b)Saturday night when we'll be celebrating. That was the only thing I worked on today at lunch and tonight once I got home. I finished the 2 cuffs, and did about 4 rows after joining them. It was a bit fiddly at first, but I joined by doing a 3-needle bind off on 10 sts of each cuff, then continuing from where I was around until I got back to my starting place. Kinda like closing off the middle bar of a figure 8, starting at the middle of one side and going around until starting back at the same middle. It will take a few rows before it loosens up a bit, and I will need to seam a few holes shut after, but I think it will work. Not bad for no pattern, eh?

Oh, and I got a cool call from my friend Julie today! She moved to Brockville and was at the Michael's in Ottawa today. We don't have one here. When I went down in August I'd bought 2 bracelet kits that are 6 mini picture frames that you string together yourself. I put family photos in both and gave one to my mom for her birthday and kept the other. The only problem is that because we are so many in the family, I didn't have room for Yannick in mine! I told Julie that if she were ever to stop by there and see the kits, I would love to have another bracelet so I could put the photos of Yannick and my best friends, so she called me to see which color I wanted. What a great friend! She's even picking me up some crimp beads that I can use for my beaded stitch markers, and even called me back long distance from her cell, just to check the bracelet color. Thanks Julie! I'll make sure I put your picture in first! :)

To Tracy from the comments: Thanks for mentioning the Dogosaurus Rex pattern from Paton's! I hadn't heard of it before, but now it looks like I have another pattern book to order! I thank you. My wallet doesn't! :)

To Alison from the comments: There was absolutely no rush. Thanks again, so much. I'm trying to save the candy for Valentine's Day. It doesn't help that I have it next to the computer right now!

Now I have to jump back into bed and make it look like I've been working on the Mock Cable dog sweater all night. Luckily Yannick doesn't read this blog!
