This is my first pair of magical mittens.
They're made from Filatura Di Crosa 127 Print i picked up at my LYS stix-n-stitches.
The fingers still give me a little problem but I'm getting better. Us 50 somethings just need a little more time to pick things up.
So I started the second pair and made two right handed gloves! Don't ask! Yes then I made a pair of left hand gloves.
There are many ways to fasten the flap but I like the snaps. I will try to find snips that match the color of the yarn for the next pair.
They're made from Knit Picks Swish Superwash.
Here is my daughter Pepper with a hat she recently made and her new magical mittens.
Perfect match if I do say so myself.
This Flap Cap is a pattern from Mighty Mitts & Flap Caps a book by Cottage Creations,which was given to me by my friend Jackie.
I used Bazic Wool superwash by Class Elite. I'm new to fair isle and love doing it.
This was my daughter Zel's first fair isle project. The pattern is nordic-headband by Heidi Nyberg. She turned it into a very nice hat.
I am off to pick a pattern for a scarf I will make for a fellow Chalk Dust Knitters. Karen had this great idea that we make scarves for each other for Christmas.
I'm not good with deadlines but she said, "You have over a month!" I still feel pressure but it will be nice to have something made by someone in the group.
