What’s in your lap?

And now for something completely different

I am sewing, by hand. With embroidery and sequins and beads and felt. There are a hundred pinpricks on my fingers, and it’s slow going; but I’m having a good time.

Oh so Fetching

I’ve made about six pairs of these mitts; two just this weekend and this third pair is well underway. Simple mods to length or stitch count makes them fit a wide range of hands. For these, I cast on 5 less to accommodate my gauge with worsted weight yarn.

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! We spent most of the day with family, eating too much and playing with the baby. I’ve enjoyed having four days off, and have gotten a bunch of stuff done around the house – including five dozen jars of jelly made, and several Christmas presents made. 

Today I cast on an afghan; the cold rainy weather puts me in the mood for cozy projects.

Wee socks

What better use for leftover sock yarn, than small socks? Yarn is Online Supersocke, and I had just enough to make a pair of baby socks (the full-size socks belong to me).

Purple topper

I have a finished object for Friday – another watchcap. This one is knit in KnitPicks Full Circle wool. I’ve been modifying the decreases from the pattern, to make them align with the ribbed crown better, but otherwise it’s a great pattern as-is.
