I found this great pattern while reading one of The Lesser Known Skeins blogs.
Needles of Iron made the Eunny Jang's Spectrum Scarf with some beautiful Lambspun Prism.
I was so inspired I picked up the Crystal Palace I bought at Yarn Diva, printed out the pattern and was off.
I have so many projects I'm working on that this will be my mindless knit.
The pattern is super easy and the yarn is soft with a beautiful colorway.
My first pair of gloves are for my daughter. I found the pattern in Not Just Socks By Sandi Rosner. This is a great book for those of us who like to work with sock yarn.
I'm making them out of Jitter Bug merino wool. It's so great to work with this yarn, not only because it's so soft and squishy, as my daughter said, but the colorway is amazing!
I am getting better at joining the fingers without making a hole.
I finished the second pair of Magic Mittens.
I made the mitten top a little different and I think they came out cute.
These are gauntlets I made a while ago for my younger daughter.
The pattern is Evangeline by Michelle Szeghalmi made with Berroco Ultra Alpaca.
Last but far from least is the puppy of the house! Maggie is a shelter dog we adopted about 5 or so years ago.
She is ready for Christmas! Isn't she beautiful!!!!
She is a sweet heart with humans but has a problem with other dogs. I think she must have had many fights with dogs when she was on the streets and that is why her left ear looks that way.
