WIP Wednesday: The Mystery Begins ...

This week I finally managed to start the annual Fuzzy Mitten Mystery Knit Along :) I found Fuzzy Mitten patterns last year just in time for the mystery then (I ended up with this adorable kangaroo), and I've looked forward to the fun again ever since. She releases 1 clue per week for 6 weeks and the final clue will be what the toy is meant to be and how to put it all together. So much fun! I'm only 2 weeks behind the rest of the group, but still. So this is clue #1 and #2:
The rain hat and rain boots was week 1 and the arms and legs were week 2. Everything went together quick and easy and I love the shaping of the legs and boots in particular! The only problem I have is that apparently I used the wrong color for the limbs - the designer said her colors were green, dark green, and yellow, so I got some that were close out of my stash; but I didn't pay good enough attention to which green was the "main color" and which was the "contrast color" and I mixed them up. I didn't even realize until I read her saying that the lighter green was used for the face so you could see the facial features better. Doh! Oh well, I'll get something figured out. I've had lots of fun so far and I can't wait to get next week's clue :)

I must shamefully confess that I haven't touched my Agatha Cardigan, nor have I blocked my socks yet. I've actually been working on my house more and even sewing (gasp!) so I haven't had much knitting time. Hopefully this week :)
To see what others are up to this week, head over to Gracey's Goodies!

  1. No matter what the colors were meant to be, it still looks like it'll be awfully cute.


Thanks for joining in the conversation!
