Shark Attack

Today's FO is actually almost a month old- but due to my lengthy blogging hiatus/ the project being a gift, this is the first chance I've had to blog about it. But, without further ado, I present to you:
Shark mittens! These were a gift for a swap, but they're so much fun I think I might make a pair for myself. Let me clarify- the finished thing is fun, but the knitting was not. In part, because the pattern, Deep Blue Sea: Shark Mittens, contained several design choices that I decided to rewrite entirely. The biggest change I made was to the mouth, and I intended to write my modifications on my project page but never did. 

The best part about these mittens? The second you put them on, you can't resist going into full-on puppet mode and trying to bite everything within reach. Many thanks to my sister Rebecca for being a perfectly un-self-conscious puppeteer/model for these pictures.

  1. Saw your mittens on Ravelry and was hoping you had re-written the pattern somewhere. So sad to read that you didn't record the modifications! Your version looks great and your sister's having so much fun in the photos!! Thanks for sharing them. **Maggie
