Endpaper Mitts

I love how these turned out!

Endpaper Mitts

Endpaper Mitts

Oops, my inside is showing

Pattern: Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang
Yarn: Grignasco Bambi in turquoise (#193) and pale green (#189)
Needles: Bamboo DPNs 2.00mm for the ribbing, and 2.75mm for the rest
Modifications: None
Other notes: I did the increases using the yarn over method that Eunny described here, which was new to me, and I think it does make it look neater.

And here’s the state of pomatomus, one sock down, one sock to go. The yarn is Celia’s Basket handpainted sock yarn. It’s more variegated than what I originally intended for these socks, but I quite like it. So far there are no crazy pooling, and I think the colours are blending quite nicely.

Pomatomus

Oh, and thank you very much for all the sewing book suggestions! I checked at my local library and found that they have the Reader’s Digest sewing book (one of the older editions), which I’ve borrowed and flipped through. It looks good indeed, and I think I’ll need to get myself a copy. I’d love to do more sewing this year, although I won’t neglect knitting that’s for sure! 🙂

Stranded

Endpaper Mitts

I have had a hankering for some colourwork lately, so when I found out about the Stranded Colorwork KAL I had to join in. I’m starting with Eunny Jang’s Endpaper Mitts pattern (and looks like I’m in good company, by the look of this list), with some Grignasco Bambi yarn in turquoise and light green. So far so good.

Speaking of stranded colourwork, here’s another one.

Hat

This is a hat that I’m knitting for one of my nephews, using some Cleckheaton Country Silk. I’m not using any pattern in particular, just following the basic hat recipe in Yarn Harlot‘s Knitting Rules! book. The fair isle pattern is my own, with my nephew’s name at the bottom section. And look, there’s a cupcake stitch marker of my own! Gifted to me by the talented Belinda.
