Just a Quickie

I wanted to make a quick post at work before having to leave. The last time I posted was a while ago. Sorry for that. I've been so busy with work and school and crafting.

I'm still trying to read my way through S&S by Ms. Austen. Also, last week, one of my cats had their way with my newish Tibetan spindle. That was really crappy, but the boyfriend bought me a replacement. That replacement came in the mail today. Hooray for that.

I started making my first pair of mittens last night. I'm working up the basic pattern from Magnificent Mittens and Socks. I like the pattern and it's pretty easy going. However, I don't like the color work on the mittens, so I wanted to make my own. I copied the blank charts and scanned them into the computer. Not sure what I want to put on them yet...I'm thinking maybe an octopus? Or, maybe a unicorn? The options are pretty endless. If I was really good at this, I would try to make Patrick Swayze mittens. Yes, that's right, mittens with the face of Patrick Swayze. Anyone know of any good software for making your own color work designs?

Anywho, that's about all that's been going on here in my neck of the woods. Hope you all are having a good week and Happy Veterans Day!



    I think this is what you are looking for :)
    I've used it before with success. Haven't tried it in months though.

  2. Hey Jenn,

    Thanks for the link! That is exactly what I am looking for and it is so easy to use!
