Phew… while my blogging mojo went away, my knitting mojo made up for that. yay!
I’ve made two hat/mitten sets for the upcoming winter
first one is from Cascade Hollywood, which surprised me by being AWESOME YARN. So sparkly!
close up’s because I had a hard time getting good pictures of these:
The hat needed blocking to get the right drape, but after that it was wonderful.
My second set is from Malabrigo Rios in Marte (my new favorite Malabrigo colour)
I loved knitting the welts on the hat and I will definitely be doing that again.
I’m half way through the next hat/mitten set. This one is from Madelinetosh Vintage in Kale.
so squishy! The mittens are up next in my queue.. just need to finish this thing:
That’s the main body and I’m on the ‘sleeve’ now. I”m hoping it will look as nice as I picture it will. This is being knit from Lion Brand Lion’s Pride Woolspun. Another yarn that has surprised me with being wonderful. 🙂
squishy garter stitch… (though you can tell my cable isn’t long enough…)
Next up on the needles.. xmas gifts!!!!
Here’s the first one:
