Here are the finished handwarmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Kaelen is modeling them for me so they are a bit big on her. I used Noro Cash Iroha, the yarn called for, in brown. I have already taken them out and put them to good use, very nice and warm, although they did fuzz up a bit. I did pay careful attention to my yarn usage, and did my best to use up every bit of the skein, so I got as much extra length as I could.
And here are some of my thoughts on the yarn. When I first bought it, I thought it was breath takingly gorgeous, as I hand wound it into a skein I dreamt about using it for a sweater one day, it was so lovely, even knitting it up was a wonderfully pleasant experience, but I've had my fix now. I don't know why, but I am no longer infatuated with the yarn, I'm satisfied with the handwarmers. Weird, huh.
And here is Kaelen modeling my scarf, she is such a sweetie, she was freezing, yet she still posed for me :-) Don't worry, we took the pictures quickly and she didn't stay outside for too long!
This is the Snowy Triangle Scarf from Handknit Holidays, I used Louisa Harding Kimono Angora, which was such a dreamy yarn to use. I think a whole sweater made from this might be too warm for me, but I would love to use it again for something, maybe a cowl.
These are my newest project, Peace Fleece's Baltic Baby Booties. I'm playing around with the pattern and turning them into socks for my son, but boy are these fun to knit up. Me likey the simple fair isle.
And last the center of the Eyelet Baby Blanket is done, so now I get to work on the ruffle edge. I think this is going to end up a nice and cozy blanket for the baby.
Well, that about sums up my knitting, I have a few more projects that will be done by the end of the week, but I will leave them for a surprise!
