Talk to the hand! August 23, 2008

Filed under: amigurumi,crochet,free patterns,kittens — gnathalie2 @ 4:40 pm

I had the honor to test a pattern for Jane (Copperscaledragon) and i have to say that these gloves are the best.  ever.   Seriously, you know how hard it is to crochet a ‘wearable’ for a tween?  Madaleine has been begging me for fingerless gloves and she has not been fond of any of the free ones online (execpt for a couple, but they were not age appropriate) so when i agreed to test the pattern i had in mind that maybe Maddie would want them. 

SHE LOVES THEM!!!  I’m so thrilled, too!!!  They fit her perfectly and i made them in pink and she looks so cool!!! 

Here is the front/top view:

And here is the back/bottom  view:

The pattern calls for three buttons to be sewed on, but go figure, i didn’t have the right kind and she was too excited to wait for me to buy some so i just used black chunky yarn.

I’ll have more pics with her wearing them soon, it’s just she made me promise not to photograph her nails cause she hasn’t ‘done’ them yet!!

Copperscaledragon (link is in my blogroll) will have the pattern up soon, so everyone go buy one!!!  It’s easy to follow and they are killer!!!!!

 

How about those kitties?!!!

Hamster has in the last few days become a regular baby kitten~ and her new favorite thing is chewing on papers!! 

In this pic she’s got a hold of Adrian’s homework:

The kitten ate my homework! by you.

 

Tasha spilled a rather large cup of orange juice on her mattress that she had pulled down to the living room and ‘forgot’ to tell me.  Yuk!  I pulled it into the kitchen so Luis could put it in the garage with the rest of the ‘county dump’ pile and the kittens have taken a liking to it:

Kitty update:  Sandy is being a total bitch and won’t feed Hamster again, but thankfully she’s old enough for ‘mushy’ cat food.  Hamster and Token love sleeping curled up with each other, and for the past week i’ve woken up to Twinkletoes curled up next to me (awwww!)  Milkshake got scratched (i think) by the mean puffy white cat and now has a really gross abcess in her face (i’ll spare you from the draining/cleaning details!)  She’s on antibiotics now, and has her playfullness back! 

House update: still smells like poo.

 

Here are some free patterns i’ve found this week:
