These mittens are Orca-tastic!!

In Orca Mittens News, I made the dorsal fin and one, uh, side fin yesterday. [scientific query: I'm pretty sure those fins on the side are not called "side fins". What are they called?] Even though this pattern IS the knitting equivalent of building a nuclear reactor - I have never knit something so weird and complicated and nerbous-making - it is TO-DIE-FOR cute!!!

(Remember when I said I was going to use Gus's camera, because my camera was taking such bad pictures? I think this picture, taken with Gus's camera, proves that it is probably not the camera's fault that it is taking such bad pictures. Note to self: Before taking blog photos, have some coffee. Also, do not take pictures when you have to leave to drive Gus to school in 30 seconds.....)

I also wheedled and whined until mighty Sister Laura came over and was my test subject for my spinning class. She was an incredibly apt student and look what she produced!!!

I'm so proud of her!

My spinning class turned out to be a blast! All the ladies did great! I was so pleased with them. And may I just say.....PHEW!

Phillies got shut out by that ding-dang Dontrelle Willis and lost to the Marlins yesterday. The Eagles won, however, which is very nice. But I was at work, so I missed all the fun.

I was going to guess Remora strap in keeping with NYC commuter lingo. But I see that I would have been wrong. I can't help but comment that the mittens are indeed Orca-tastic. I can't even wrap my eyes around the complicated extra yarn danglees that I saw in the wonderful picture (no matter whose camera it was!!!). And Laura, yet another example of spinartistry! You now have created Iced Beauty in the cake world, and have won the Spinartistry Award for novices. Of course, it had to be easy having the Spinartistry Teacher Extraordinaire teaching you! I can't wait to learn to spin and play mahjong!
