I’ve not got much blogging time today, but I wanted to check in to report that I’m making good progress on my latest mitten project. Here is the first one completed.
And here is the palm.
As you can see, I deviated from my nearly ubiquitous corrugated ribbing for two-color mittens and instead did a picot hem and a little band of colorwork above it. Then some plain 1×1 ribbing, and then right into the hand. Kind of fun for a change!
However, I do think I am a bit “over” mittens now, so when I complete the second mitten, that’ll be it for a while.
Besides, on Monday I get to dive into some Hand Maiden Swiss Silk in the Boreal colorway. It is the yarn for my Camp Loopy Project III, which I can start on August 15.
More on that later.
Even though it is hotter than all get-out, Lucy’s favorite spot is curled up in my lap. From the LucyCam:
All hail the mighty a/c!
