New month, new progress

I actually have some FOs to show off again.

First and most exciting (for me anyway) - the sample pair of mittens for my pattern!

I had wanted a picture of them in the snow, but then it rained all through the night after I finished them. I think I might almost like this picture better than what I had planned though. The leaves peeking through kind of set off the cream and brown.

Now I just need to finish knitting the grey and red pair, so I can add my photos to the pattern. I still have to wait until my testers are done before I call it complete, but I'm one step closer!


Also finished - the cowl I knit for the Ravellenic games. I got imaginary awards for cross cowling, lace luge, single skein speed skate, and stash skeleton. First 'real' project I've done using yarn I spun, and I love it.

Here it is all laid out for blocking-


My other project photo was an awful awkward angled selfie, since I didn't have anyone handy to take it for me. Instead of sharing that I'll hold out and hope for better future pics!


I also attempted a rainbow of hexis for my Beekeeper's blanket, but finished just after the cutoff time (darn it)



Still, this was enough to push me to nearly 60 hexis (let's not talk about how many I have left to go, alright?)


So that's me for this month. Looking forward to finishing a couple things before next post...and hopefully casting on one new project. I've been good, I think I deserve it :)



  1. That mitten pattern is GORGEOUS!! I'm with you, the brown in the background works really well with the mittens. It was meant to be!!

    I love the cowl, too! It looks so intricate!

    Your beekeeper's blanket looks so colorful and amazing. WOW. I love the little hexagon with the face! Too cute!!

    I find it so fascinating that you can do all of these things. They are all so artistically beautiful yet different. That's talent for you!!! :) --Lisa

    1. Thanks, you always say the nicest things :)
