My fingerless mittens are getting there. I'm doing the increases for the thumb now and think I have around 6 rounds to go before I put those stitches on hold and do the last little bit to the fingers. I'm really pleased with how they're looking, I hope my swappee likes them too!
Today I'm going to leave you with a couple of photos of the newest member of our household. Sherlock is a syrian hamster and although it's only been 13 days since we brought him home he's very much a part of our routine lol. In the mornings the children come downstairs into the lounge to watch tv and to see what he's been up to overnight. After school they construct lego mazes and puzzles for him and then before they go to bed they take it in turns to give him some tasty treats and a quick cuddle :-)
Hopefully I'll be back soon with something knitted/crocheted to show you!
