Quickie project and quickie post. Just wanted to show you what I did last night. While cruising around on different sites yesterday afternoon, I saw these mittenettes on Midnight Knitter's blog. I’ve had some Merino/Mohair that I spun up. My good friend, Jessica, sent the roving as a gift from Stitches a few years ago. It was from a company called Widdershin Woolworks. I've searched all over the web and can't find it so I guess they are no longer in business. Too bad because I love the stuff. Finally… a project to knit with it! They took one hour each.
I wish the camera could pick up the beauty of this yarn. It's very lustrous and has bits of oceany colors all through it (in fact, it’s called Seascape). And it’s really to bad you can’t reach through the screen and feel it because it’s like butta I tell ya. SO soft. These will be perfect for the cold winter mornings at the bus stop waiting to shoo the boys off to school. It took about 50 grams knitted on 3mm needles. It’s spun at about worsted weight. I have 50-55 grams left (my scale keeps switching) so it should be enough for Jessica to knit a pair. I even did an extra round of ribbing at the top. Still working on the KPS top-down jacket. Should finish the body this weekend.
