I have been working on some more Christmas knits this week and I’m really enjoying these quick little knits:
These are fingerless mittens, the quickest kind too, which is perfect because I’m knitting up 5 pairs of these little babies. My daughter asked me to make something she could give to her friends for Christmas. At first I was thin king hats, but time just kept passing and I only started a couple of days ago so quick fingerless mittens it is! (I only got 2 more pairs to make and then to make cat faces on them……will be going at it today! )
Here is a hat I am also working on:
I work a lot with lopi, Icelandic wool, for many reasons, one of them being that I love it! But I chose to use something else for these little things I’ve been making lately.
A few years ago I was fortunate enough to get a bag full of beautiful yarn from a fellow knitter who wanted to get rid of some stash. I get a little weird when it comes to yarn, I’m afraid to use it because I think I might come up with something even better to use it for……..it’s a strange thing I know but I’m working on it.
I decided I’d use some of it for my christmas knitting this year, it wasn’t easy initially but once I just made up my mind that was it and it felt great!:!!
For the mittens I used Manos del Uruguay, handspun wool, and for the hat I’m using Classic Elite, 50% llama and 50% wool. The llama and wool blend is a dream to work with, love how it feels and the halo of fuzz that it creates……it’s gorgeous.
