Ready for Winter!

Posted in Finished Objects at 9:59 pm by merknits

I decided a few quick projects would be a nice break after the big cabley project and before the big lacy project.  Both were pretty easy and very fun!

entrelac scarf

Pattern: Entrelac Scarf from the tutorial here
Yarn: Paton’s Soy Wool Stripes (2.5 balls)
Notes: Great, easy to follow tutorial, and the yarn is perfect for entrelac!  I do find it a bit scratchy, but I think I can deal with it.

mittens and scarf

Pattern: Target Wave Mittens from Knitting Nature
Yarn: Paton’s Soy Wool Solids and leftover Soy Wool Stripes from the scarf
Notes: I like how the stripes turned out slightly different on each mitten!  I used the pattern for the child’s medium (for the most part) with a thicker yarn and they fit me just fine.  They do look funny by themselves though:

mittens alone

Now, to decide if I really want to knit some Christmas gifts this year or if I should just continue knitting for me…

    That really is the big debate isn’t it? Right now I am all excited about Christmas knitting though. I wonder how long it will last…

    I’m late to this party – but those mittens are really cool! I do hope they kept you warm in the latest snow storm in Texas!
