As I mentioned previously, I got an order on Etsy for a pair of baby shark mittens, and I finished knitting them yesterday:

Pattern: Deep Blue Sea
Yarn: Cascade Ecological Wool and some vintage wool (I swear, this stuff never ends)
Needles: US 6/4 mm
Mods: I apparently made the snout pointier than I usually do.

Baby shark mittens are adorable. They are also hella quick, despite what the Ravelry project page will tell you about the time I spent knitting them (it says like a week, but I was working on other things). Also, I love knitting shark mittens. They’re so cute and fun. : ) Definitely one of my favorite things I’ve ever knit.

In other knitting news: Socktoberfest is fast approaching. And I knit socks now. So THAT’S HAPPENING. I’m planning to knit as many socks as I can (plus my Halloween cape. And a Liesl sweater for a WWFY swap). I think I can probably do at least one. Both the sweaters are in worsted weight, at any rate.

So Socktoberfest. Who’s with me?
