Basket dive

Yesterday I was "tidying up" (in quotes because I ended with a bigger mess than I had to begin with) and thought I might as well empty out the knitting basket. You know...kind of like tilling the soil in the spring. Not surprisingly, I found a few projects that I had forgotten about.

Big Rainy Day Fingerless Gloves

I started these sometime last winter (Ravelry says in December) because I really want my own pair.

Since I have fabulously large hands (as a woman, I'm not sure what this says about me) I've forgone the sportweight and instead I'm using a mixture of worsted and dk yarns to size things up a notch. So far it seems to be working out fine and glove number one is Elli-sized. Not sure why these fell by the wayside...probably Christmas. Time for number two!


The Henry Scarf

Ah, Henry! In a fit of herringbone lust I happily cast on for this during the Beijing Olympics, got a few rows in, and screwed up.

Now that we've had a little time apart I've made peace, frogged the offending row (this bad boy has loooong rows), and now Henry's back in rotation. Happiness, rainbows, confetti, etc.


Snorri Gloves

Gloves for Thunky! Started last winter with the alpaca he brought me from England, I'm designing these as I go.

Abandoned because the colorwork in the fingers (which makes them double-thick and snuggly warm) is a major pain in the neck. I think it's time to ditch the fiddly fingers and just go plain. If that means these will be done in time for next winter, I'll be a happy camper.


That's it for today! I still have a few projects that haven't made it blogside, and a small pile of unblogged FOs, but I feel like I'm getting a little closer to current!

p.s. Thanks for all the helpful suggestions for the pink scarf! I *think* I've decided on a new stitch pattern...yay!

Comments

I would love to knit your gloves one day (I got my copy of Knit.1)! They are so pretty and original! I love all your other FOs also. Nice to read you more often!

Oooh, I love that green & brown combo!

I agree that the fingers on the gloves should be a solid color - for your sanity anyway...

Oh I love the fingerless gloves. I want to make a pair before the year is out. Those are so cheery.

I lurve the first mittens so much! I want a pair!

I love everything! Although, everything everyone else is knitting always seems more interesting than what I'm knitting ATM

:)

those gloves are nifty.

I recognise that yarn! Hugs.

Yay for fingerless glovers for you! It's high time, and that is also my fave of your patterns so far. (:
