Give a Hoot! Plus, I was naughty…

Okay, I can’t even express how pleased I am with this upcoming Craftzine project. I’m about to choke on my own adorableness. I actually ended up pulling a double because I enjoyed this project so much. This one’s from the main project:

And this is the secret back side of the secondary project. I’ll save what’s on the front side for the tutorial (hint: they rhyme with funny and turdy!), but here are the kittens who found their mittens! I think I’m going to make some of these (what are they? find out soon!) with crying, mittenless kittens on the front and these bemittened kittens on the back. I should probably add wee kitten grins to express their mitten-based relief/joy. They look somewhat ominous without mouths or at least whiskers.

And these are the kittens who found thier mittens...

Despite the buoying effect of glassy-eyed cartoon animals, I’m feeling a little under the weather tonight. I hope I’m not coming down with something. I can’t tell if I’m actually ill or just having a psychosomatic response to seeing a little white stuff on my tonsils and having a little swelling. I’m going to dose myself with vitamin C and see if I can talk Ron into getting up and letting the animals out for me tomorrow morning so I can sleep off any creeping infection.

Today I was naughty and did a little shopping at the Leavenworth Fiber Festival. It was the first year, so it was on the small and quiet side, but the vendors had stunning fiber and the venue was perfect, so I think with a little ravelry buzz, it could grow quickly and be a great annual event. I hope they do it again next year, because the timing’s perfect, just when you’re fracking sick of summer and ready to think about cold weather and spinning again.

But more importantly, here’s what I got!

This was outside the venue. Knitters’ GPS: “You have arrived at your destination.”
