It has been busy over here since the Giftalong started, I’ve managed not to spend all my time on the Ravelry or Pinterest. What I mean is that I’ve taken food and sleeping breaks, and work breaks. I haven’t managed to do much knitting!
I’ve been having fun repinning some cool things over on Pinterest, I’m enjoying the opportunity to browse some designers I haven’t encountered before. I’m in love with a children’s cardigan by Jenny Wiebe – never mind for the kids – I want one for me! I seem to have a thing about colour-blocking at the moment – Michelle Meyer has a gorgeous shawl which is definitely tempting me too.
Today I’ve mainly been looking at mittens. I have some lovely fibre from Hilltop Cloud – a gradient shading from white to dark gray.
My favourite mittens were sadly chomped by the dreaded moths so I’m on the lookout for a new pair. I haven’t spun the fibre yet so I’m not limited by yarn weight. You can see my current favourites on my Giftalong2014 favourites board on Pinterest.
I have a few mittens and wristwarmers included in the Giftalong too: Planetarium Wristwarmers, Buttons! Mittens, Hildasay Mittens and Voar Wristwarmers.
