Monday, December 1

Please, may I have some more?

My favorite blog has become as still as mine. Maybe if I post some knitting, I will get some in return.

Made another mitered square hanging towel. The yarn turned out to be more pastel than I thought. Evocative of a candy necklace.

Bought this at Books a Million (DuPont Circle) and made these in hand-dyed yarn (Green Apple) that I bought at YarnCon 2007. The socks are currently in the wash (in the lingerie bag on cold with the jeans).

I thought I would make 10 pairs of mittens for the church sale on December 6. I should have found 9 other people to make one pair each. Tooo boring, even when I mixed it up.

Top down mittens. Can you guess which one was first? This is the BEST way to make mittens. Just like top up socks but, you know, a thumb and no heel. Wool-Ease, paprika on size 4 dpn.

Started these on the plane. Combination of Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns and the vintage Scandinavian Snow Sets by Kajsa Lindquist. These will definitely go to the St. Thomas Christmas Bazaar on Saturday. I think I can finish the thumb. Wool-Ease green and wheat, size 4 dpn.

Not so sure about these. A bit idiosyncratic, even when made according to the instructions. Wool-Ease grey and purple, size 4/5 dpn.

There is a lot more where that came from. I haven't been blogging but I have been knitting.

Showed Katie these projects and she is very impressed with the mittens...."Diane is soooo Coooool!!!"
(yes, I Know) That's why we are friends :)
