Just In Time

Well, I didn't mean to spend so much time away from the blog. I have been knitting some but lately I've been reading more often than knitting. Right after finishing my cozy little pair of socks, I casted on for some mmmmMalabrigo mittens that I had been wanting to do for awhile. My hands were freezing quite easily inside the house and since I've finished them I've worn them not at all, since it's been f@*%ing 80 degrees!

Anway, here they are. Very cute & cozy & super soft.

Project: Target Wave Mittens
Source: Interweave Knits Fall '06, also Knitting Nature
Yarn: Malabrigo in Cuarzo & Emerald
Needles: US 7 & 8
Started: 2/15/07
Finished: 2/25/07
Comments: The pattern was okay, they're knit flat so they have to be seamed, ugh! The sizes are children's and I made the largest for my tiny hands, but I did have to shorten the thumb way down. I look forward to wearing them some day. The best part is all of the leftover Malabrigo.
