Happily Ever After Mitts
A few days ago I finished these adorable fingerless mitts. As soon as I seen the free pattern on Spud Says! I knew I had to make them. I didn't have any Spud and Chloe Fine on hand, so I used Knit Picks Palette in very similar colours. They were so quick and fun to make and I would totally do them again in a heart beat! I think knitting them in various colour combinations would be really fun.
I got my Mom to take some photos while I posed with my morning coffee :-)
For some reason I find that the new photo uploader in blogger makes my pictures look squished. They don't look quite like the original pictures once they load :-(
Now that I'm finished the mitts, I'm currently working on a crochet scarf for my Mom. She picked out this colour of Bernat Mosaic yarn the other day so I thought I'd get right to work on it for her to wear now that it's getting colder. At the moment, it's coming along quickly. I hope to have to done by the end of the weekend if all goes as planned.
Another thing that is a current WIP is a crochet baby blanket for a friend who is due early next year. She found out she's having a boy so I thought I'd do a cute boy-themed set. I think I'm going to include the Bitty Cabled Cardigan I made, as well as knit up the matching hat. This yarn has a pretty tan colour in it that is very similar to the off-white colour of the Knit Picks Comfy I used for the cardigan. The yarn for this is Bernat Worsted in the Wedgewood colourway. I've always been intrigued with Wedgewood china, so I've been wanting to find a way to use this yarn for quite some time. Since she's not due for a while, I'm just slowly working on this. I would like to have it completed soon though since Christmas knitting needs to be started soon!
Anyways, I'm in the process of baking bread so I should go and check if it's ready to punch down and shape into loaves. I hope that you are all having a wonderful Friday!
