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.

Looks COZY!!!!! Love it!!!
Hi Deb, these are looking FAB!!!! I am so keen to make a pair, but I don't think I can knit that well. Is the book worth investing in?? Thanks for your sweet comment over at mine, and enjoy your knitting. xoxo
These are Awesome Deb...!!! hugs...x
ooooh- so lovely- they look so warm and cozy. Very pretty,
Oooh, I love those mittens. I took note when those were published because they looked so perfect! Beautiful blog!
Love the mitts! They look so cozy. I'll have to check for your book, it sounds like a good read.
what a nice pattern for the mittens and I love the shade of grey you choose! I made handwarmers last week but I might have to cast on a pair of mittens as well since it's getting colder and colder every day.
good luck with your projects :)
I love the bobble detail, so very lovely! your yarn looks soft with a slight halo which will make for some very warm mittens :)
I was eyeing up that mitten pattern last night - I love the grey you've chosen for yours. Thanks again for the inspiration.
I really like those mittens. I just cast on a pair of fingerless mitts last night, but am wondering if I'll have enough yarn left over for these too!
I like the The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club. I agree, it would have great if she would have included a pattern in the book. I'm about to start book two today.
Your mittens are looking fabulous! I love Drops Lima, well any Drops come to think of it....my cupboards overflow with the stuff!
Until I saw this I had completely forgotten that I made mittens years ago when I was probably a teenager ... My Nana was an expert so she taught me ... I bet these will be so warm!
All your projects look so yummy. I wish I had more time to knit I'd cast all of them on.
Lovely mittens. Winter is more agreable with nice garment. :-)
They look lovely! Tempted to make some mittens for myself this winter actually, I really like the pattern you're using
I love those mittens.
Love the mitten pattern, it's gorgeous :)
Wow, the detail in you work is amazing! I'm really inspired by your knitting.
Oh, I just adore those traveling stitches and bobbles. Such cute mittens you're going to have! Happy knitting. :)
Oh they are so lovely Deb, you're doing a great job there, and such a good colour and yarn too!
Great pattern and texture on the mittens; that quotation journal looks interesting, too!
These look fab, Deb - and I like the sound of the book too, must look out for it, sometimes a wee bit of chick lit is just good for the soul :-)
They look amazing. Loving the pattern on this. Your daughter is going to love them.
Oh that mitt is fabulous! The little bobbles and cabling are perfecto! I read that book some time ago. It was a terrific read. I love your hat.
Deb they look gorgeous!
Hope you & family are keeping well
Hi Deb my goodness these look just lovely and what a fabulous job you are doing - I love knitting and might just have a go at these. What a super gift they would make for some lucky person. A great post as always Deb
Lots of love
