Today I have a roundup of finished projects. Some of these have been done for a very long time and sat waiting patiently for a friend's birthday.
both knit in Knitpick's Felici in the Afternoon colorway
This hat was one of the most enjoyable items to knit that I've found. I have no idea why it was so fun, but it was better than watching Britcoms while drinking iced coffee.
I knit these owl mittens to match the hat. Chroma has a very long color repeat, so it does some strangely interesting things.
Spillyjane's Owl Mittens,
I think the back is just as beautiful as the front. I've knit a few pair of fancy mittens now, and I've done at least three different patterns for the back. I used this pattern on the Fornicating Deer Mitts as well. Those were also done in Chroma, although in a different colorway. I think Knitpicks should either a) hire me, b) send me free yarn, or c) go public so at least I could buy stock in it. The amount of yarn I buy from there is a bit staggering, and there's no sign of me being able to stop. Oh, well. It's better than a crack habit.
I'm nearing the end of a mammoth project, so hopefully I'll be able to talk about that later in the week. For now, let's just keep our fingers crossed that the tubular bind-off isn't going to be the kryptonite I fear it is.
I hope you're having a great week!
