M’s Mittens

Zach and the Boogedy and I came to Washington DC to visit family for the week. This cold weather makes me want to knit, and I was really glad I brought some scraps of Koigu pppm on the plane to play around with. My 6-year-old niece flipped over the idea that I might make something just for her. I really only had enough to make some tiny, ribbed fingerless mitts.

She hounded me every day to make sure I finished them! Every little kid should have an aunt who knits something special when she comes to town!

These mittens were even more exciting than the nutella-filled crepes we made the kids for breakfast (which I forgot to wash off before photographing these mitts).

Here are some photos of the cousins piling stuff on top of my brother-in-law while he tried to work last night:

Jonquil Shrug

A present for Alexis, a shrug made of pale jonquil Euroflax linen.

I had to wet it down and block (stretch) it out to dry to give it shape:

Putting dozens of pins in the bed made me a bit nervous, but I got them all up.

I made and sent this ages ago, but forgot to post pictures because I was waiting for her to wear it and show me! I can wait no longer!

This was a fun, easy knitting with a free pattern from my local yarn shop in Key West.
