Not Much Knitting

This is supposed to be a knitting blog.

Are you surprised? I wouldn't be surprised if you were since there has been very little knitting shown on here lately. I seem to be knitting and knitting and knitting but I don't seem to ever have anything to show.

I am in the great hole of knitting! Help me!!

To help myself out a bit I decided to knit a pair of mitts from Mission Falls Smittens. They are a quick knit since Mission Falls is Worsted Weight Wool. I am almost finished the second mitt so I will have them modelled for you soon. I am doing the pattern Dizzy but of course I have chosen my own colourway and I am flipping the colours on the other mitt.

So the top will be orange and the bottom will be blue. Mission Falls is fabulous superwash wool and I am enjoying knitting with it. I may be doing more in between diving into the knitting pit of no results.

And since that is all I have to show you I would like to show you my sister's scarf. All she has to do is add the fringe and she is done. It is from a book I have in the shop but I can't remember which one I will post it as soon as I find out.

It is so soft! Knit with 3 yarns together. The 3 yarns are Mission Falls 1824 Cotton, Collinette Silk and Collinette Mohair.


I just love this close up! Doesn't it look luscious! OOh....I want to touch it now. I guess I will just have to make one for myself

....sometime....I feel the pull of the pit! No! I will not go into it until the second mitt is finished and I have taken dozens of stylish photos!

Off to the beach on Georgian Bay tomorrow. Heat wave escape for sure. Will I knit?
You will have to wait and see!

The mitt looks toasty warm and the scarf is to die for. Yes, you definitely need to make one for yourself!

Hope you had fun at the Bay today!

The scarf looks beautiful and cozy. Last Minute Knit Gifts?

I hope you are having a great time. Best of luck with the knitting black hole.

Oh and love the mitts! I'm glad I'm not the only one knitting mitts in August.
