I hate that feeling! Having to knit on a schedule drives me insane, yet I always end up having to do just that. I bring this on myself! So here are the latest finished objects in the Holiday Knitting pile.
First up some very boring, yet compete, mittens to accompany the braided tam. I was going to try to do something a bit more creative and finally decided that I really just don’t have the time. At least they match and are soft and comfy. They are one of the only washable sets I have done, so that is also a plus. The last bonus of these unassuming mittens is that this yarn is FINALLY out of my stash. YAY me!
Next up, I wanted to use up this pink yarn with brown flecks and I decided to pair it with a chocolate brow. I knit this cute striped tam and then some mits to go with. I was really not in love with the way the cuffs on the mits were turning out in relation to the rest of the mitten. I was on the verge of frogging them and starting over just in pink when it occurred to me that they were looking like flower pots. So I experimented with some needle felting and I am happy with the results! And no more pink yarn with brown flecks in the stash (okay well maybe a bit left… but not a whole ball anymore) . YAY me!
