Pat's Knitting and Quilting
January 2 , 2008
I bought this kit almost 3 years ago just before we left on a road trip to Alaska - I love kits for vacation knitting - all so nice and compact and ready to go! ANYWAY - I never even pulled the yarn out of the bag on that trip, but there it was still nicely packaged and waiting for me this winter.
Pattern: Bosnian Patterned Mittens by Beth Morimoto
A well written pattern with a beautiful chart - I made no changes. I love both the palm and back patterns and the beautiful cuffs with the tiny bit of rust peeking through. The thumbs are placed slightly toward the palm side for a perfect anatomical fit! These mittens are so warm with the extra layer of worsted wt. yarn from stranding - perfect for walking on these cold winter days. They are MINE!
Sleeves attached to Tangled Yoke....hopefully I'll be tangling soon!
For some reason, I'm being drawn to socks again. Right now I'm working toward the toes on Florenz and I just started Nutkin (not enough done for a picture yet) as my take along socks, but already I'm deciding on my next socks....and there are so many choices - just in KALs alone. Madder Rib for Vintage Sock, Canal Du Midi for KOTR, Ravelry Sockdown has a choice between Cookie A (I would make Thelonius) or an intarsia mystery pattern. I also received a new Red Bird Knits stranded pattern and what about my Cat Bordhi book? - still haven't made a sock from that one - how about plain stockinette in one of my beautiful variegated yarns?
Or maybe I'll just start more mittens - or a scarf...
