^d8 knit & crochet

Have been finishing things like *crazy* lately. Am on my 10th pair of the fingerless mitts from the previous post. Pair 10 is being worked with Lang Yarns YAK (in a very pretty ivory shade), and they are super-soft. It will be fun to see all the mitts side by side after they are embroidered, and this pale color should show off embroidery pretty nicely.

I also finished this cowl about a week and a half ago:

The whole time I was working on this I went from love to hate and back again because it was hard to get a sense of how it would turn out. I think the end result is pretty good. It looks a lot better on because the stripes “smoosh” together and they seem less blocky. Will there be a pattern? Of course there will! I hope to have it ready to test knit within the next couple of weeks…note the use of the word “hope” instead of “promise” and the lack of “definitely”s and “totally”s. *fingers crossed*

Also working on these again after an embarrassingly loooong hiatus:

Can’t wait for cooler weather so I can wear all my new goodies! :)
