I just can't get enough of stranded knitting at the moment.
First up are more Selbuvotter mittens, these are made for a 4 year old.
I've used the outline of Annemor #2
However I changed the pattern on the top of the mitten.
I spent Sunday evening with a piece of graph paper and my Fair Isle book. Not bad for a first attempt!
These are knitted in the left over black sock yarn Ruth sent with my fantastic Rainbow socks and the remains of the ball of Opal Feelings from the fruit pastel socks. Now I have to decide whether to make them match or not and what to do with the thumb!
Last week the new Twist Collective was published and I instantly fell in love with (and bought the patterns for) Postwar Mittens and Harika Socks. Hmmm, I'm sensing a theme here!
I then went looking at the Kaffe Fasset Regia Landscape in my stash and decided the Earth colourway just didn't do it for me.
So, after my fashion lesson from Kerry on Saturday, I knew when I saw the Jungle colourway that it contained all of the Jewel colours of the season.
Two balls arrived yesterday from Modern Knitting.
It goes perfectly with the solid gray yarn that accompanied my Yarn Yard sock club yarn this month.
Finally, something that only requires one strand of yarn at a time. I finished the second Meret (Rav link) in time for Rachel's Birthday.
Knitted in RYC Cashsoft Aran, this one is more slouchy and has a half rolled and half ribbed brim. Apologies for the terrible photo - but that's what you get with a dirty mirror at 7.30am!
I can see everyone getting these for Christmas! I *may* have accidentally ordered some aran from New Lanark to make some more!
