Works in Progress..........Hierro Mittens.
I'm back today with my regular Work in Progress, sharing with you what's on my needles. I'm knitting my first pair of mittens, I've crocheted a pair of arm warmers before but never mitts or gloves with fingers/thumbs.
I'm knitting these Hierro mittens by Kelly Ashfield, this pattern is another one from Pom Pom Quarterly, Issue 6, I love the stitch definition with the cable and bobble combination.
These are for Paige, when they're finished, I'm using Drops Lima in a wool/alpaca mix, as you can see it's a pretty grey which has a slight marl effect to it. I've had to go down a needle size from the pattern so I'm using 3.5mm.
The other project I'm working on is my Ardvasar hat, I'm on the home run now and well into the decreasing, I'll definitely have a FO to show you on Friday. As usual I'll be joining in with Ginny's, Yarn Along and I'm three quarters of the way through The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club by Gil McNeil.
I've got to say, I'm thoroughly enjoying it, it's an easy read, nothing deep, just a quick to read, chick lit. I love the fact that she mentions yarn brands like Rowan and the knitting show at Alexander Palace, it would of been good if she had shared the shawl pattern that is talks about in the book, like Debbie Macomber does in her Blossom Street series. Check out what others are knitting and reading this week, here.
Tami's blog, too.
