Wollmeise yarn, Oktoberrosa and snow!
What a surprise - I am building up my stash - for the winter maybe?
This is my first Wollmeise yarn. And there is some more coming
These Selbu mittens was made by Kicki for the Oktoberrosa auction 2007. I ended up winning them - lucky me! The money from the auction will go to supporting Breast Cancer research.
The pattern can be found in the same book as for the girl mittens I am making. They have been knit in Rauma 2 tr. gammelserie strikkegarn.
I guess we need warm mittens these days. We had a small amount of snow coming yesterday.
Some of us was more happy about it than others. She wanted to make a snowman.
A bit early for that, but I can really feel the need for warm socks, mittens and hats.
So I have finished the first mitten (except the thumb) . I am not really happy with it. The pattern says it is a size 5-7 years, but it is very close fit for my daughter. She likes it like this, but I am worried for what will happen when they get wet. Pattern call for 2 mm, I used 2.5 mm but my gauge is still a bit tight. Maybe I will need to try 3 mm. Yes, I know I should have made a swatch.
I have also done some sock-knitting, but I have really been messing up the thing doing one mistake after the other. Finally I had to rip it two pattern repeats. That is not so fun when you are doing two socks at the same time! But now at least I am on the right track.
