Yankee Knitter Designs Mittens

Another finished project--Just in time for our 100 degree weather. Ok. So it is a bit early for mittens, but my child has outgrown her favorite pair of Lion Mittens purchased at a church bazaar sale in Denmark.

These are made from the Yankee Knitter Designs Mitten Pattern, size child medium. I used Classic Elite Bazic Yarn (superwash).

These are knitted flat and then stitched together.

The arty shot. Yes. Drama queen modeling the mittens.

Lutea Lace-Shoulder Shell

A currently completed project! Wow. This is the Lutea Lace-Shoulder Shell from the Summer 2007 Interweave Knits.

I need a quick summer cotton project and had a bunch of Mission Falls Cotton sitting in the stash that needed to be used. It was a fun project, as it had the little lacey bits on top and short rows for shaping. My only problem was that the short rows hit my bust too high. If I had been paying more attention, I would have dropped them lower. But, still a good fit overall.

This can go through the wash machine and will probably shrink a tiny bit, which can't hurt. Here's the back with the small person who had to get in the picture.

I'm behind in my postings--by about 3 projects. Must take pictures....

It has been a crazy summer, but knitting has occurred. I picked up this yarn at a small shop in Dover, NH when visiting my Mom. I had never worked with Art Yarns before, but the yarn is yummy soft and doesn't seem to do much pooling. This was a quick knit from Knitty--ThujaLink. I finished these during a conference in June, and they received much attention.
