Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of The Andes (one 50 gr. ball)
Needles: Size 5 dps
It was so much fun to knit this pattern. So many people have and I can see why. Amy S. knitted hers a little longer and so did I by about 4 rows.
Knitting the thumb this way was a new method which I liked very much. Knit a row with waste yarn and then pick up the live stitches later.
My co-worker, Rebecca, ...oops, I should say former co-worker as she has departed for greener pastures this week, was the recipient of these mitts as a "going-away" present.
I didn't do the picot edge as she did not like that look.
I've completed several other projects, about four others, that I haven't had time to take pictures of and blog about but I will soon.
I started teaching my sock knitting class this week. I only have three students but that is fine with me as I can provide more "one-on one" attention. The class is being held in the comfy library at my local high school. There are four sessions of instructions and am hoping they can complete at least one sock. They are at various levels in their knitting career.
I did visit a new yarn shop last week about 30 miles from home. They recently moved to this new location so it is an "old" that has become "new". They have a bright, cheery location with a great selection of yarn and fantastic customer service added to the mix. The weather was beautiful the day I went so I strolled the "farmer's market" across the road. It was a very uplifting day!
I've had no time to spin but hope to carve out some time out of my busy weekend schedule to spin some of that roving I purchased recently.
Other than that, life has been pretty quiet.
