What I did on my vacation

My family went to Niagara Falls.

We rode on the Maid of the Mist.

We went in the fun house.

I knitted by the fire.

We burned Captain Jack Sparrow in effigy.

I bought yarn and some wicked DPNs at the Knitting Habit in Niagara Falls.
I found another yarn store, in what seems like a scavenger hunt, in a town I don't even remember the name of, which is just as well because they mainly stocked acrylic. However, I sniffed out some Austerman Step.

Okay, enough with the grade 2 show and tell. We had a great time, but it sure is nice to be home.

Fish Mitten Pattern
I have received many requests for a pattern for the fish mittens and I've decided to give it a go. It will take a lot of work on my part. I consider the required skills to be at the advanced level, and I want to make as clear a pattern as I can. For these reasons I would like to offer the pattern for sale at about $5. If I can figure out the technology.

My plan is to write out the pattern as I knit one fish mitten. Then I will hand it off to volunteer test knitter Maureen, while I also test knit it on the second mitten. This could take a while.


  1. Ok! I'm looking forward to the final result. No hurry, good things are worth waiting for. :)

  2. ok, Miss Show & Tell, what colourway did you get in the sock yarn already?!

    Glad to hear you had fun in Niagara Falls. Yarn shops while on vacation are the best.
