It's About Time


I've been busy, I really have, but just not inspired to write about anything.

Just finished a pair of Bronte's Mitts for a Ravelry KAL. Loved the pattern. Such an easy knit for a very pretty pair of girly mitts. I knit them in Rowan Cashsoft 4 ply, which is so soft and pretty. The only mods I made were to use size 3 & 5 needles rather than the recommended 4 & 6, and added a row just before knitting the thumb waste yarn. Otherwise it's a great pattern and a very quick knit. I did make a mistake on one of the cuffs and had to redo it, but that was my fault. It's all fixed now.




I finally blocked my Chevron II. Well, not exactly blocked, but gave it a good steaming. Turned out very nice and drapes very nicely. The reason my blocking or steaming had come to a halt was because my iron was missing. How does an iron get on the "missing - nowhere in sight" list you ask? I bought a new iron, just before my home renovations, and had no idea where it was. My daughter and sisters helpe me with clean up after everything was done, and I was afraid it may have been tossed in a Goodwill bag by someone. I know, I could've bought another one, but I always had hope. Anyway, it's found and works beautifully.



Also finished this slouch hat for my sister Jasmine for her birthday, which was April 12. Yeah, I've been away for a while. She's quite glitzy when she wants to be and pulls it off with class. She loved it. Well, I should hope so, since she picked the yarn and all.
So much more to talk about and show. I probably should write while I'm in the mood, but it can wait.
Keep creating!

Those mitts are so beautiful! I've never seen that pattern before.

The slouchy hat is very cool. I can just picture it on someone with the panache to pull it off. Glad to see you're back...

Just out of curiosity... where was the iron? :)
