Eunny's Endpaper Mitts #4

Half way there... or maybe not..
I'm done with my first mitt and I busy on knitting the cuff of the second one.. but I've decided that that will be the first half of a pair.. so this first mitt is more or less a try out of the pattern. My mother likes the mitt so much that she asked me to do a pair for her too :)

Just a short note to let you all know that we have a very welcome addition to our little circle of knitterly friends.... Cynthia O'Neill. She'll be posting stuff on her knits hopefully soonish!

First Finished Object of 2007: Korknisse

My first finished object of 2007 is this small, cute and adorable Korknisse. I was spying on Saartje's website and found this easy pattern here. I made this little man.. whom I've christened Harris - he is wearing some sort of tweed -.. in less than an hour last night. It was so easy! Anyone who knows how to knit with DPN's can make this :)
My plan is to make one every week, in all kinds of different colours, as Christmas tree decorations like Elliphantom. I think it would look super cute, all those little men hanging in a Christmas tree...

Pictures at last!

Finally some pictures of all my knitting projects! My mum's digital camera finally has some reliable batteries in it, and I have finally realized it's a better idea to take pictures of everything without using the flash or lamplight.

Anyway, in the first picture you can see all my deep red Alpaca Soft stuff: my bamboo needles, a scarf, a hat and a tiny little MP3 player cosy.

Then the second picture! My Fair Isle stuff I am so proud of! (Sorry, but I made all this while I was ill, and I had never done Fair Isle before, so I was suddenly rather surprised at my own knitting skills.) In the picture are my Fair Isle baby hat, my first bit of Fair Isle baby scarf, a fresh ball of Rowan Pure Wool DK (Marine) and the beady stitch markers (red ones!) that Gracie made for me :) The hat looks a bit narrow, but that's because of the brim which has a lot of stretch in it... I also love how the top of the hat looks...a bit like a tuft of whipped cream :)

Then a few close-ups of the Fair Isle bits... The third picture is the pattern on the baby hat, and the fourth is the baby scarf...on which I'm using the same pattern, only with the colours the other way round :)
