Wow, that is beautiful.  I second the previous question... how hard was that?

Thanks everyone!

The yarn is Paton's Classic Wool Merino (223 yards and I used about half a skein).  The pattern is sort of my own making.  Morehouse Merino has a pattern for shark mittens which I saw online and thought "i can make that".  Each mitten is basically a large garter stitch rectangle that is folded in half.  After sewing up the side seam about half way,  I picked up 9 stitches for the thumb tube.  Completed the thumb and continued sewing up the side seam.  For the claws, I had intended to use craft felt but found craft foam to be softer, easer to cut, and held its shape well.  I used a hole punch to make holes through the bottom of my claws, inserted the foam into the top opening, and then sewed the top of my folded over rectangle through those holes - closing the top of my mittens

A young friend of mine likes to play monster... but every monster needs claws and those are not allowed.  These, however, are parent approved:

Doh!  haven't posted enough to put up a picture.  In the mean time you can see the monster mittens here:

Ooh I am loving this blanket.  I must make it!  Some baby somewhere will be very happy.  Quick question, how much yarn did you use?  The pattern calls for 14 oz. but I'm not seeing a yardage amount.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Smiley

Sorta off topic but here is a great list of plastic bag recycling stuff from when SF banned the plastic bags.

I love the colors... especially on the blanket.  Girly but not overly so.

Heh... I just had to pick up my current project to figure out how I hold the yarn.  My yarn is draped over my index finger and between my index and middle finger then back up between by ring finger and pinky.  So, it is visible above my index and pinky fingers and held on the palm side under my middle and ring fingers.  Like someone said before, it allows me to purl and knit at almost the same speed as all I need to do for the purl stitch is loop my yarn around my index finger and pull it down in front of my knitting.  .... and now reading over this, I'm not sure it makes sense...
