Daphne and Delilah go Adventuring

Once upon a time there were two little monsters. They got a picture taken for their passports so they could go on an adventure! Daphne (the striped one) and Delilah (the little one) love to go traveling.

After flying in an imaginary plane to the living room they posed in front of a lovely backyard view! (It's very cold and snowy)

Then, they went tree-climbing. Delilah was very excited about this as you can plainly tell by her expression and outstretched arms. In fact, she was excited throughout the whole vacation.

Next, they sat on top of a birdhouse so they could admire the scenery better. (It gives a better viewpoint because it's higher off the ground, you know.)

Finally, they were wrapped up in some nice soft tissue paper and sent off to a birthday party!

The End!

The Mittens.

These mittens took a long long long time to make. They're pretty though - however- they look prettier in the picture than they do in real life. The tale of these mittens is filled with disaster and (sort of) tragedy.
At first, they seemed fine. I liked making them and I thought they were pretty. Then, once I got to the main part of the hand (the part with the tall flowers), the knitting seemed to slow down. Really slow down. It seemed like I was knitting forever.... then I realised the chart was so small, I couldn't read it, which led to slower knitting. So I enlarged it, and all is good, right? 

NO. They seemed way too big for their intended recipient. But, I kept knitting, hoping that they would be ok. Finally, I finished the first mitten. (It took about a month...) and I had a week to make the other one.

So, all was well. (kind of) and I kept knitting. Then, when I was mostly done, I realised that I had forgot to leave stitches open for the thumb. OOPS. Oh well, I thought. I'll just do an afterthought thumb) When I was done, and cut the thumb, I realised that I had cut the thumb in the wrong place. Or so I thought.  I really had knit two left mittens. Well. After some thought, I just cut the thumb in the opposite side. It doesn't fit quite as well (no gusset) but oh well. 

I gave them to her and she likes them, even though they are too big. She said I should enter them in the fair. :) 

Maybe someday I will knit another pair and enter them!
