Fiddle dee dee!

Finishing up some WIPs from last winter -- I really want to be able to gift them this year!

These are the fiddlehead mitten pattern, I was struggling with getting the lining to fit nicely inside the mitten as the original instructions weren't working for me. So I got frustrated (after finishing two other pairs last year) and cast them aside in disgust! But I love them, so they must be finished. The best part?

That there is a Brushed Suri lining. It feels like you are wearing little baby bunnies on your hand. Sadly, nay, outrageously, my friend who works at the LYS tells me that Brushed Suri has been discontinued - sad, sad face. Fortunately, I have enough stash to last for a few more pairs.

Which is good, because I just started another pair for the DaddyO.

In case you thought there was no sewing content in this post - I would hate to disappoint you, so I whipped these up!

Halloween trick-or-treat bags, reversible with squared bottoms.

And lastly, do you remember this guy?

He is about to make his return ... Everybody get out of the water!!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday. Hope you're having a grand week, thanks for visiting!
