I'm Punching a Snowman!

Oh, yes I am! I just got back from taking my
Rug Punching class. And, I am trying to complete my mitten tonight so I can put it away until next weekend when I will learn how the heck to turn this little guy into an actual mitten. W00-hoo! The pattern is by Stacy West, it's actually an applique pattern that I really loved and thought it would make a perfect beginner project, it's Trio Of Woolen Mittens.
I think I will have enough left over wool yarn to make all three. The mitten is a nice big size, perfect to hang on a coat peg with some winter greens. I can't wait to finish it. I chose a dark pumpkin for my background, and the snowman will be a natural wool color.
I will save the pic for next week. This is the BACK of the piece, the front looks sooo cute. I am lovin' it!
No Snowmen were hurt in the making of this post, JIC there are any activists out there. I am a humane puncher, LOL!

Ok, I hate to be a tattle tale but I'm calling the SPS (snowman protection society) I feel it is my civic duty to do so.

Otherwise I would just tell you it's really gonna be cute!



Now off to find the 1-800 number...

I punched one thing, it is fun to do with yarn, but now yarn costs a fortune.
