I've been staying out of trouble and knitting mittens. I've been testing various techniques such as casting on, the "afterthought thumb" and different mitten tips. The class I hope to teach starting this Thursday (if one more person can just please sign up) will focus on cables and the mittens in general. The cuff on the mitten above has a knitted picot edge as opposed to a crocheted picot edge on the blue mitten. The white accent rows will be wider on future mittens. They are somewhat lost in the shadow on these mittens.
I've been using up my stash. What was I thinking when I purchased this colorway?
I plan on gathering various knitted items in my possession that have different types of cables as samples. Fortunately, I didn't have to hurry and knit those up this week.
Lizzie has been test knitting for me as well. She's always such a great help. If you don't read her blog, go on over there as she always has great tips on a number of subjects.
Tonight I need to write up two mitten patterns. Even if the class does not materialize, it will be good practice for me.
I'm reading your mind!!! I bet you are thinking, "Gee, Joansie just added 3 more UFO's to her long list!". I know, I know!!!!
