It seems that i’ve really found my knitting mojo over the last 2 months. I was worried for a while there that nothing seemed to turn out the way I really hoped, but recently it’s kicked in full swing. After three shawls that have been rather well received (thank you all!) I have finished a sweater and started a new mitten design. The most astonishing part of designing the shawls is that people have actually purchased the patterns (which is incredibly humbling) and I now have some christmas spending money.
On to the knitting!
I asked the Mr “What should I knit now?” and he decided that it was to be mittens. So Friday night I cast on for a pair and have finished 1/2 of them.
Cabley and purple.
I was quite happy with how they turned out. Now I just have to revise the cable chart I started and write out the pattern. Oh & knit the second mitten 🙂
The other knitting project I have completed is my Phyllo Yoked Sweater from Knitting From Nature. Better pictures are coming after it’s dry I assure you.
I am still shopping the stash and havent’ bought yarn in months. Though I miss buying new yarns (there are so many beautiful colors and textures) I enjoy getting the closet of yarn in a manageable state and using long forgotten yarns.
I didn’t realize how much purple I was working with. Now though it’s going to be silver. More on that later though. I hope to have the mitten pattern named and up for download by the end of the week 🙂
