Yesterday was the deadline to send out Knit Mitt Kits. This is the bag I sent to my swap pal. It's going overseas so I hope it doesn't take too long.
Yarn: Lopi that's been laying around since my mom made everyone in the family an Icelandic sweater one Christmas in the early 80's.
Pattern: None, made it up as I went along
I've also finished (finally) the socks from the Lisa Souza Yarn that my Sockret Pal sent. I cast these on months ago. I don't know what took so long, too many distractions I suppose.
Pattern: None, they're just your basic run of the mill, 64 stitch stockinette sock with an eye of partridge heel flap (alway so pretty in handpainted yarn if you ask me.)
Yarn: Lisa Souza, Lime and Violet colorway
Needles: Addi Turbos size 1
Boots: Frye, on sale Bay-bee!
After much thought and kind input in my comments, I decided to cast on for Demi in the Peace Fleece I got last week. I can see already that this pattern will be a labor of love. It's all of those darn knits and purls through the back of the loop. I love the look of them, hate knitting them. Demi is worth it though, it is such a gorgeous pattern. There are two bloggers I really admire working on this pattern right now too. I'm sure to find the inspiration to continue there.
Sorry about the lack of links. I've got to get DS to the ophthalmologist. We're late already.
