Here's what we're up to today ::
- make mom a new heatpack
- work some more on the fiddler's mitts
- play with cool birthday presents ( knitting doll and wool felt ! )
- work some more on angie
The fiddler's mitts and angie will be a matching set to wear ,,,,,, eekkk!!
So excited , it will be awesome.
The fiddler's mitts are my very first colourwork, i've taken little hints from others. Cutting yarn into little balls, wrapping the two strings every 2 stitches or so to prevent holes. I am going somewhere in between really tight tension and loose tension. Add that into following a chart for the first time, and its exciting and mad in a feverish sort of way. But look ! The stranded colourwork is starting to come thru. I don't expect this first stranded project to come out perfect ( too late for that ) , but I see this as a great learning opp. I'm expanding my knitting horizons. You should see how far along i've come , just in the past year. It feels great.
