Oven Mit

I just had to share. This is Nessa Rose’s baby Big Papi. Isn’t he just the cutest? He looks like he should be reclining on a chase lounge by the pool, doesn’t he? I haven’t said much about what I’m currently knitting because there are 3 super secret Christmas and birthday gifts being knit. But as soon as I’m able I’ll share details with you all.

2 Random Mile Challenge:
Since I was already using number 216: Cascade Lana Grande, I decided to keep going. I was inspired to design something based on the quiches I just made. When I took them out of the oven I used our trusty “grippy frog” and a regular pot holder. The pot holder didn’t lend the same confidence as the grippy frog. Here I was holding a 2 pounds of bubbling cheese and egg with the tips of my fingers. There was a need for another grippy frog, but not as structured. Something that could hang with the pot holders and not need space in a drawer. Enter my Oven Mitt.

Side note: every time I talk about it or he sees it, The Boyfriend yells, Mittens!!!! And laughs as he thinks of Mit Romney.

I also decided a matching pot holder to sit the dish on once it’s been taken out of the oven would be nice. Both will be felted and I’ll be sharing the pattern in a few days.

Oh my goodness Big Papi looks so adorable and so angelic. Does everyone know he is really "Hellboy"! Yes, for a 2 pound 10 ounce Devon he is the devil himself, always teasing, chasing and even pushing the dog around. It should be illegal to be so darn cute!
