First things first, the winner of a copy of Knit Nordic: 20 Contemporary Accessories Inspired by 4 Traditional Sweater Patterns by Eline Oftedal is GerryART, who has been emailed. As always thank you to everyone who left a comment and a big thank you to Sterling Publishing for offering a book for the give-away.
My Leftovers Cowl has gotten a bit too big for me to drag to the office every day on the off chance I have time to knit a round or two during my lunch break. So I have something more portable on the needles for a commuter project:
This is the first of a pair of fingerless mitts. I am knitting with Shibui Knits Sock, a fingering weight 100% superwash merino wool, in the Abyss, and Roppongi colorways. As you can see, I’ve got a cuff done in corrugated ribbing. I’ve worked up a fun little chart for the back of the hand. All will be revealed in time.
But I do continue to work on the cowl. I’ve not had a lot of knitting time so far this week, but I am plugging along.
However, a certain furry little somebody has been requesting a lot of lap time this week. I am putty in his paws.
