Penguins for Jessica

I knit the knitty penguin for Jessica's birthday. Here it is. I was sort of unhappy with the increases in the tummy, and I remember modifying them, but I can't remember how (perhaps a simple increase instead of making a new stitch by picking up a stitch between two others?)

Eliza's Wristies in China

Here's a photo of Eliza wearing her wrist warmers in China. They're a little hard to see (since they are grey and her jacket is a very worn black) but she's definitely wearing them!

more mathematical hats

The newest issue of knitty includes a pattern for a kleinbottle. It's probably better than mine, but since it was just published this week, I was totally first! I knit mine the same way she did hers, although I would probably knit it differently next time since the seam was kind of difficult - I had to pull the tight end where there is no tube out the hole, and that made the seam a bit tough to sew.
