For those of you who are Shark Week inclined, it is coming up! It starts this coming Sunday 8/9 and goes through the week. Jimmy Beans generally puts out some kind of shark week sock kit, which I always get and sometimes even make 🙂 This year they are doing something a little different. Shark Mittens! The pattern is by SpillyJane, and the kit uses MadelineTosh yarn. You have the option of doing either regular mittens or fingerless mitts, and the kit comes with a shark progress keeper and some stitch markers as well.
So a little different than the usual, but sometimes different is good 🙂 Will I break with tradition an actually make them next week? Maybe – it depends on how my other projects are moving along!
Do you watch Shark Week at all? Do you have any other nature shows or overblown extravaganzas you enjoy?
