First, is anyone still working on Carabe? Who all finished a Carabe in the last month or so? Share pictures please!
Second, is anyone planning on doing Blue Sand with me next month? I had hoped to get a little jump start on mine so I could be a step ahead of anyone else beginning January 1 but I’m not sure that’s going to happen. Blue Sand will be hard for me to finish in one month but I’ll give it my best shot!
Now . . what’s on and off my needles. The chicken mittens are finished and they are adorable! The pattern has not been released yet. I will let you know when it is. These mittens are so fun to make and they’re so very simple. One mitten could easily be made in half a day. The pattern, as written for me to test, including two sizes: 5-6 and 8-9. I used one size smaller needle for the body part of the mitten and I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a close enough fit that Addie (2) will be able to wear them. They will be big on her but should fit her perfectly next year. I love the inner cuff to hopefully help keep snow out of the mittens and help keep her sweet little hands warm.
Next on my needles is Kynance Cove. This is the same photo I shared the other day. I’ve done a few more rows and think I’ve decided to do one side of the button band with ember and the other side and neck band with the dark greenish gray (faded parka). That yarn is Madelinetosh DK and I love the yarn and the colors. I want to finish this sweater so I can wear it this winter but if I don’t get it finished, and start Blue Sand in January, this one is probably not going to get finished. Knit faster! But . . I really want to make some Christmas cookies over the next few days too! Just not enough time to do everything.
Priority on my needles right now is a test knit for Laura Aylor. You can’t tell much about it right now but it’s a cowl neck pull over.
The yarn is Knit Picks City Tweed and it’s Aran weight so it should go pretty quickly. I think this could be my go to sweater for every time I leave the house and need something more than a T-shirt.
