I haven't talked much about knitting lately, have I?
That would probably be because there has not been a lot of knitting happening around here. What little knitting I have been doing has been fingerless mitts. Whereas I am horrible about getting that second sock finished, I am pretty darn good at knitting a pair of mitts....go figure..LOL.
The above pair of mitts was knit using Anne's Eliza pattern. She and I were paired to do a non-sock club project for yarn4socks. Anne's theme was "My Fair Lady" and I love her interpretation of Eliza Doolittle. The pretty little pleats and lace were just perfect!
I LOVE these mitts. Even though I knit them as a show display, these ones will be mine. I will knit another pair for show. ;-)
I do have a few larger projects slated for this spring and summer, so I am enjoying the fast knits while I can. :-)
Anne and I were talking last week about yarns and we both agreed that there needs to be some nice artisan washable yarns for children and adults who don't want to be bothered with hand washing. This week I have listed a sportweight called Pixie and a dk/worsted weight yarn called Frolic. I will be adding new colors next week for both yarns.
I will admit that I am not a huge fan of superwash yarn, but I have a grandson who keeps begging his grammy to knit him a sweater and I know his mother is not careful enough not to toss that sweater into the wash, so it is for him that I am adding a few new superwash yarns into the mix. He deserves a beautiful handknit sweater. :-)
