Yes, I am still working on the mitts from the Jane Austen Knits magazine... but I cast on for the second mitt! My goal is to have them finished by the end of the month. *fingers crossed*
My Spanish teacher from last year had a baby and I have (finally) finished the baby hat and booties I set out to make for her:
I love this Accordion Cap I found on the Knitting Pattern Central and it knitted up in about 2 hours! The only reason it took THAT long was the picot cast on which was new to me. Once I had that sorted out it was just an easy alternation of knitting and purling!
Here are some baby booties to match! I knitted them based off this pattern and modified it so it would have a stripe on the leg and a picot bind off to match the hat! I think they are too cute and almost a "Seussical" look about them.
Here is a skein I spun from the fiber I bought at Stitches! There are only 68 yards here but I am anticipating over 1000 so I have a long way to go yet! Sorry the picture is a little dark, the fiber is a denim blue and is a little hard to take a picture with color accuracy.
Here is a close up of the strands. The color is a little more accurate in this picture and you can see that it's around DK weight. (Did you know that stands for "double knit"? I didn't... you learn something new everyday!)
I hope everyone has had a nice weekend and was able to relax and get some knitting/crocheting/spinning done! Hopefully I will be able to post again soon from my own computer once it is back to normal.
