Hello! I hope everyone has been enjoying the beautiful Autumn weather we’ve been having. If you’re in New England. I’m not sure how the weather is elsewhere. 🙂
My recently finished objects are all firsts for me. I knit my first hat:
The pattern is Sockhead Hat by Kelly McClure. I used Jill Draper Makes Stuff Esopus in the Last Embers colorway, on size US 2 1/2 (3.0mm) needles. I love this hat! It fits well, and the yarn is soft and comfy against my forehead.
My next finished object is a pair of fingerless mitts (also the first I’ve knit) for my husband:
Sorry for the kinda terrible photo. The pattern for these is Peekaboo Mitts by Abi Gregorio. I used Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted in Black, on size US 7 (4.5 mm) needles. Dave’s been asking for fingerless mitts for a little while now, and of course he wanted them in black, so I decided to finally whip some up for him. They turned out soft and well fitting, and he loves them. Yay!
Works in Progress:
Since Dave’s fingerless mitts turned out so well, I thought I’d make a pair for myself as well:
I’m using the same pattern and the same yarn, except in brown. The brown photographs better, so you can see the mitt better here. I have one done, and one to go.
I also cast on a pair of socks:
They are the Vida Socks by Mina Philipp. I’m using Knit One, Crochet Too Ty-Dy Socks in colorway 1518, on size US 1 1/2 (2.5 mm) needles. Mina is hosting a Vida Collection KAL (knit along) in her Ravelry Group through the end of the year. I’m a pretty slow sock knitter, so I’m not sure if I’ll finish in time, but I thought I’d give it a try.
I finished spinning some fiber I’ve never spun with before:
It’s 50% baby camel and 50% silk, and the fiber was hand dyed by Port Fiber. I ended up with about 275 yards of a sport weight yarn. The finished yarn is so soft and drapey, and I love it! I’m not sure what I’ll knit with it yet, but I’m leaning towards a small shawlette or something to wear around my neck since it’s so soft.
Well, that’s it for now. Until next time, Happy Crafting everyone!
