Happily Ever After Mitts

 Hello Knitters,

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!

Happy Knitting!!


  1. Your mitts look beautiful! And so soft and squishy...must.knit.these!

    The baby blanket colors are very nice - soft and boyish at the same time. :)

    And you're right - Disney movies on a bad day are always nice! :)

  2. As always your projects are terrific. I must try out some of those mitts too. Now, I think you should send me some fresh bread for breakfast!
