I’ve been doing quite a bit of knitting over the past few days, including finishing my handspun convertible mittens. Unfortunately I haven’t taken any photos yet, but I will soon, I promise! I have been slaving over the cardigan Abalone by Beata Jezek, knit out of deep blue Bernat Satin. It has worked out wonderfully, besides an issue I’m having with the applied i-cord bind off, which was too tight for the drape of the garment. I’m trying to figure it out now!
In addition, my friend Kylie (of likepurlsoffastring) has published another pattern! It’s called Bisous, it is a pattern for “a lightweight hat with “x”s around the body, which converge into a star at the top,” and it is available for $2.50 in her pattern store.
In celebration, she is hosting a giveaway, where she will give away 5 copies to the lucky winners! To enter, check out the original post here.
Exciting news! I’ve just published the pattern I wrote up for the JDRF Mittens I made! (see original post here.) In case you’ve forgotten, this is what they look like:
I’ve listed them as free in the Ravelry database, but a suggested minimum donation of $5.00 is listed if you wish to download or use the pattern. To donate to JDRF, you can visit their website here.
Thanks again for your support!
