Please don't tell my husband: I am an idiot!*
So, I have been stalking an out-of-print Finnish mitten knitting book. I joined the Finnish rendition of ebay when one popped up on it (thank you Lilia for letting me know!), but I accidentally entered my top bid as my first one. What a fool! The box came up for me saying the equivalent of "are you really sure?" It wouldn't allow me to leave the box without answering; I couldn't copy and paste it into my translator box. I punched whichever box was blue and glowing.
Now I'm up at 3am to see if I won.
In the meantime, here is a picture of the mittens I knit my daughter. I have never embroidered before on knitwear. I freehanded it, mainly because I couldn't think how to mark on this bright material. I don't have any disappearing quilt markers -- they always seem to dry up before I use them. I did try a chalk quilt marker on the interior circle, but it didn't mark well. Any ideas?
Here is a gratuitous picture of my finished stranded mittens. Love 'em!
