Photo Updates

As promised, here are some photos to go along with my post from last night.

I finished the blue hat this morning along with the first of two fingerless mitts.
Here is a close up of the seed stitch band -- definitely closer in color than the second picture.  Guess that's what I get for taking the picture at 10:30 pm instead of 10:30 am.

I think I mentioned yesterday that this yarn came from Stonehedge Fiber Mill in East Jordan, MI.  It has wool, alpaca, and a bit of mohair -- such a nice fabric when knit up.

The fingerless mitt is a Kraemer Yarn that contains Sterling Silver, albeit 2%, but still quite a unique yarn.  I carried it with Cascade 220 to give it the weight needed for the mitt.

Sorry for the blurry shots but I think you can see the glimmer of silver.

And finally, the white/grey hat made from Classic Elite yarn purchased years ago.

I also started working again on my top-down hoodie made with Cascade 128 Tweed.  I'll try to post an updated picture tomorrow.

I love cascade tweed yarn! Th mitts are beautiful and the fit is great.

Did you end up re-starting the mit? I didn't think you were using two yarns in it when you started it......

Thanks Lupie. They're a bit stiff compared to the ones I've made with Malabrigo, but I think they'll hold up better

No, I was using the same two yarns Friday night. One strand of each because the Kraemer is laceweight.
