I finished my second Hot Stuff! mitten on Friday night. Behold:
To recap, these are my own design, knit from Socks That Rock Lightweight in the Shadow colorway, and Wollmeise Sockenwolle in the Campari Orange colorway on 2.75mm needles. I may write the pattern up at some point.
I’m still quite enamored of mittens, but decided to switch gears.
This is the Garden Party Shawl, the latest from Laura Patterson, available here. I encourage you to follow that link — there are some beautiful photos of the shawl there.
I’m making mine from Dream in Color Baby laceweight yarn, in the Deep Sea Flower colorway (purchased from The Loopy Ewe, and am using a 3.75mm needle (US size 5).
This is a triangular shawl, with a very interesting construction. You knit a narrow center panel — a “backbone” for the shawl. Then you knit sides out from the backbone, then a deep border along the bottom. I’m currently knitting the first side. It’s a lovely pattern and fun to knit.
And I think we all know how I feel about Dream in Color yarn . . .
Here’s the Netflix description of a movie I’m about to watch. If you click on the pic to enlarge, you can read it.
Seriously, who writes these things??!!
Lucy is resting up so she can watch the movie with me.
Edited AGAIN to add — I think its fixed — you should be able to comment now!
