All summer long my knitting chair has been empty. I keep my projects hanging here in order to keep them away from the cats and so I don't forget about them. I can't say my mojo is back in full force but when it gets around to showing up, I'll be ready with a couple of new projects.
Today I cast on some mitts with the wonky spindle project.
They are the recipe of month:: align mitts by Courtney Spanhower
. It's a simple half ribbed pattern perfect for yarn that has a lot already going on and as you can see this stuff has a lot
going on and you can't even see the sparkle.
I also cast on the Galiano Vest by Megan Goodacre
using my Shetland.
I didn't get too far because I couldn't figure out the knitted on front band chart or the directions. It took a lot of ripping and a lot of figuring to get this much done in about four hours
. Afterwards, I was trying hard to remember why I think this sort of thing is fun.
I like the mitts...they are a success so far! The vest will work out I hope, if not , find another pattern cuz life is too short!ReplyDelete
