This year I plan to spend a few days during Christmas knitting for us. But, to do that guilt free, I’m finishing up a few customs.
My first ever cables.
This year, one of my goals was to learn to knit cables….I’d done a fairly good job ignoring that goal…..and almost made it to years end when I was asked to knit these gloves by a very good customer of mine…how could I say no!
Bella's Mittens by Marielle Henault
Using Shasta Daisy Knit’s “Hoot Owl” on bulky merino.
These are so soft and squishy~ Super warm and comfy.
They should be in the mail tomorrow if they are dry
And wow, I sure wish I’d tried cables earlier than this, they were so easy!
And matching shrugs for Evie and Alix.
Erika requested washable so I used Lion Brand Vanna Solids with the pattern
and accented with sweet Tessa Ann Buttons.
Now to see if I can get the matching skirts sewn!
Also on the needles are longies for the YYMN Custom Knit winner.
The mama sent me 3 skeins of Plymouth Yarns BOKU
I started these this morning and am at the gusset now. I should have them ready to ship by Monday
I’d better get to knitting while I can as it looks like we will finally get our tree up to night!
Stay warm out there!
