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!
