Knitting projects 2


I am still knitting the aran baby blanket, in moss stitch, it is so big now that I get very warm when I am working on it. The Aran is undyed, unwashed and smells like outdoors.



Leiny knit these fingerless mitts last winter. She knit a pair of mitts that can be converted to fingerless gloves by pulling the flap back and securing it on a button (will put photos in another post) for me in red and I love wearing them.



I bought these hanks of Araucania hand dyed wool at the Knitting and Stitching show last year, I have yet to find a pattern to begin a project with them. I thought about knitting cushion covers, a hat and scarf, a chunky cardi, but I still do not know yet. What do you think? Any ideas?

Big hugs,

Margie

Owww... I love the sight of all those beautiful yarns!!!! And those fingerless mittens are gorgeous! Maybe I'll knit a pair for myself too.
And the wool is beautiful for a scarf and mittens I think, it looks so warm and cosy, perfect for cold winter days!
Have a lovely weekend, hugs Elly

How about a linen stitch cowl with the Araucania?
I'm hoping to get to the K&S Show in Harrogate next month, only problem is I spent so much last time hubby reckons I should just be window shopping this year ... what!
