Wedding crafts, they are becoming important. (If you want to see more of 'em, check out the wedding blog.)

The purple gluesticks? They don't dry clear. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

I have the doofiest family...

... but it turns out that Rupert is some sort of... heavenly being or glowing Pokemon or something. My iphone's crappy camera exposed his true nature to us. (Weird, huh?)

The other one, well... we can't all be glow-Pokemon.

Lifeline!

First, an apology for the lack of blog posts and pattern releases- not having internet is really messing with my workflow. But we're moving soon and I've got a major backlog of patterns to get tested/formatted/released, so things will look up soon.

But for the time being, I have to show off these:

These are Spindleshanks' Lifeline Mittens, which I had the great pleasure of testing for Miss Vivian, using the gooorrrgeous yarn she gave me as a going-away present when we moved last fall (a good thing, too, 'cause all my handspun is too chunky for these lovelies.) I didn't get a great picture of it on my hands, but they have a really cool gusset that sort of resembles the lifeline on your palm:

I also love the neato garter-eyelet "bracelet" around the wrists (you know how I like my garter eyelets.) That Vivian girl, she's got a fabulous eye for detail.

I knit them both in like a day and a half, too- they freakin' flew by. Is this what it's like knitting from other people's patterns? I should do it more often. Anyway, you can find 'em on Ravelry here, if you're so inclined. And let me tell you, if you're sitting on a special little skein of handspun, these are just the thing. They feel so gooood.
