While one refused to give any signs of life for about three weeks necesitating a visit to an expert technician, (after much difficulty in finding one), the other has developed a ravenous appetite and chews up anything that it is presented with!!! Give me a log fire and a basket of knitting any day, the less I have to do with machines the better!!
Color work has been the theme of my knitting of late. I continue on slowly with my Favorite Things scarf but hold no illusions to it being ready for this winter! But I have completed two smaller projects,
both of them from Fair Isle Style (Mary Jane Mucklestone) - I think I'd like to make everything in this book!!
These Mushroom Kellimuffs were a present to myself!
Thankfully I wasn't making them to be gifted to someone else as they came out different sizes! It's not noticeable when they are worn but put side by side it's very obvious. I counted the rows and stitches and they are exactly the same, it's just that I must have knitted the first one, which came out smaller, much tighter.
Hot off the needles are two pairs of fingerless mitts, one for a wee lassie in Rémi's class and another a christmas gift to be sent across the channel! My current project is 'hush hush' - if you know what I mean!!
|thinking of embellishing them with a few beads...|
Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along and looking forward to catching up with what everyone is knitting and reading this week.
