I finished knitting an earflap hat for my friend Tanya over the weekend. She wrote the pattern and had asked members of our knitting guild to knit up samples. I think she's got about 10+ hats so far! Next up on my list of must-knit items is a pair of mittens for my co-worker Lori B. She's travelling to NYC for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, where her son's marching band will perform. Lori asked for a pair of mittens that would keep her hands warm and show their school colors. Here's the start of the mitten:
I haven't knit anything with a cable in it in quite some time. I'm using Berroco Ultra Alpaca for the black cuff and Stonehedge Fiber Mill's Shepherd's Wool for the yellow mitt, knitting with size 4 double point needles. I hope to have them finished by the end of the week. Next up is the lemon yellow felted bag I have been commissioned to make for a repeat customer. He's giving the bag to his sister in England for her birthday in December. Time to get crankin'!!!
