I started November with some lofty goals. 2 faire isle mittens and one plain mitten. To put it bluntly- I didn't get there. I got close-ish?
I'm just barely squeaking by but fresh off the presses (and still a little damp in these photos 😕) are the sexily named "NORDIC STYLE #3" mittens.
Needles: US 2.5
Notes: I don't really have much to add to this, except to compliment the pattern designer who wrote a very concise pattern. So good... might do it again!
Faire Isle mitten #2- I've got nothing. Hoping to cast on something tonight and eek them out prior to school being done on the 21st. Wish me luck... and a change in time to 36 hours a day.
The Zimushka mittens are close.... they just need thumbs.
I'm hoping to have these done by the end of the weekend. These need some serious blocking. If I were to knit these again I would go up a needle size. These fit my hands (which are small) but they are tight. I'm not sure I'm going to gift them to anyone other than my sister... who has teeeeeny tiiiiiiiiiny hands. We'll see what happens after blocking. They're good looking though!
And that's where we're at today. I'd really like these mittens done because I want to move along to some easier projects... but gifts first. Hopefully I'll have some good news to report soon! Let's do this December!
