Year Of Projects Week 08





I did not much to show for this week....the soft fluffy blanket is about halfway (as far as the yarn that I have is concerned, who knows but that I may change my mind and add to it, once I finish up what I have!) and seeing as it looks just the same, I did not take new pictures. I still find the thick yarn and thick needles unpleasant to work with.

Far more pleasant is the test pattern I'm working over, over at Ravelry. It is really nice that I can end up with mittens matching the scarf I made, plus I get to use the remnant yarn and I get to take an item off my list. Not bad getting  3  'flies' with one swipe...

...and the pattern test I'm working on...



I've finished the first mitten and hope to start the next one later tonight. I really like how these are turning out!

And other than turning my drawers inside out looking for my cable needle...that's been it for my knitting escapes this week!

That mitten is gorgeous - I love the colours in that yarn - brilliant that you end up with a matching set.

Oh my! Such pretty mitts-- I really like the little cable detail and will be looking for that pattern when it is released. What is the pretty yarn you are using? I hope your week is productive and happy...

Love the color of your test knit. I am a cable lover so they are extra pretty to me.
