After a l-o-n-g night and full day of knitting, the mitts just need the ends woven in and they will be done and in the mail shortly! Success is sweet but tiring! Ha! The pattern is Anne Hanson’s Fallberry Mitts from Knitty.com. Sadly, I do not remember what the yarn is – but I love the color! Luckily, this was a quickly memorized pattern which was a very good thing!
I do have one or two other bits of holiday knitting I would still like to get done and somehow I imagined I would finish the mitts as well as the last 10-ish rows done on another gift…silly me! At least these final tiny projects don’t need to meet a mail deadline – so I am not yet without hope!
All this knitting time means I have moved through another audio book – I finished My Antonia! and thoroughly enjoyed it! Cather’s writing is warm and inviting as she describes life on the Nebraska prairie. 4-Stars and I highly recommend!
I also finished Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl. I was not wowed by this book, but still – I think it was a book I should have read. It got 3 stars.
There are several more books I would like to finish yet this year – we shall see if I can accomplish that and next week, I will share my Best Of 2018 Books!
There are still a few knitting days before Christmas, but I have begun to think about some selfish knitting – eagerly, in fact! Haha! And, my failed Tegna yarn will be swatched again to see if it might work for a new sweater that Marie Greene is releasing on December 31 – she will be leading an 8-week knit along around her new sweater! If you have never knit a sweater but want to, I highly recommend Marie’s patterns – they are easy to follow, and her tips and tricks have proven most useful in my sweater journey! PLUS!! This sweater pattern can be adapted for several gauges! So, if you (like me) struggle with gauge – do not fear! Marie has done the knitty math for us, so we can knit a sweater that fits!
That is all I have for this week! Are you still trying to finish some Christmas knits? As always, If you wrote a post to share today – please leave your link below!
