It's a lazy day over. Watching Sci-Fi channel and a Tivo'd Dr Who episode.
But I did manage to finally upload some pics to Flickr and update my Ravelry projects, and post here too!
These are from Arlene Williams "Lopi Mitten Pattern".
I followed her needle size, but I should have gone down a size or two.
The fabric is not as dense as I would have liked it to be.
Otherwise it was a pretty easy pattern and fun to knit.
Trio of Mittens
Left pair from Warm Woolies pattern
Center pair - my own pattern mix
Right pair Cinchy Chunky Mittens - a free Ravelry download.
The blue mittens were made with one strand of worsted wt yarn and one strand of Amy Blatt Mohair. I love this combo as the mitts are so soft and warm.

The above mittens were knit with one strand of worsted wt and one strand of Dazzleaire.
I discovered Icord thumbs!
So let's move on to my other WIPs!
A Gansey type hat. Pattern from an online friend - not sure if she is going to sell or publish.
Another Hat - but I'm not happy with it.
I just love the original pattern, but not my hat. I feel like frogging it - I don't like my color choices. Then again, I am slowly learning how to knit this intricate stitch and I should just keep plugging along and finish the hat.....
Still working on the Mile-A-Minute crocheted afghan for my daughter.
This is my Shrug It from One-Skein Wonders
I'm knitting it longer than the pattern and probably making 3/4 length sleeves.
Shawl for the Elders
I have 6 more garter stitch ridges to go! Then I start the edging.
Pattern - Half Circle Shawl
Okay, so I'm a little busy....
