Knit Something of the Month

DSCN0851
New month, new project!  This is my November Knit Something of the Month project.  I started them on November 1, but I'm just now getting a chance to blog them.  The pattern is Zombie Vixens and the yarn is Sanguine Gryphon* Skinny Bugga in Longhorned Beetle.  I'm making them as the pattern is written, but I'm using a size 0 needle (2 mm) to get them small enough for the size of my hands.  As you can see (sort of, they aren't blocked and they're really trying to curl around themselves and hide), I've finished one mitt and I'm almost halfway through the second.  I always do thumbs last and together, right at the end.  This is a nice pattern with an interesting cable and of course these will work with my red cardigans I've been knitting.  Also, in the case of a real zombie invasion, it won't show blood splatter when I get busy with the cricket bat.  (Bonus points for knowing the cricket bat reference.  Note to self, buy cricket bat, maybe Amazon has them - Bingo!)

*Sanguine Gryphon no longer exists because it split into two different businesses:  Verdant Gryphon and Cephalopod Yarns.  I'm not sure if this colorway is still available.

Longhorned beetle according to the spreadsheet belongs to Verdant Gryphon. Options to get this colorway would be through special dye pot purchases or request it and wait for it to come around on the dye schedule. VG no longer carries skinny bugga.

Love your project!
