I was the first one to post a picture of my finished mittens from the Mystery Mitten KAL. That qualifies me for one of the prizes! The mitten pattern is very quick to do!
Pattern: Mystery Mitten KAL
Yarn: Moda Dea Washable Wool
Needles: US 5
Size: Fits my 7 year old GD
And I got quite a bit done on my Midnight in the Orchid Garden Socks. I CO with 72 sts to make a bit bigger so I could make them a bit longer than my usual socks. These are six inches from top to starting of heel flap. Notice the difference in the yarn patterning. You can pretty much see from just the patterning where I went from 72 sts to 64 sts. I doing a bit of a stitch pattern: R1: K2, YO, K2tog; R2-4: K even. Between the yarn patterning and the stitch pattern there is quite a bit of movemnt in the design.
Today starts the NAS Mitten KAL, so I'll be working on mittens today!
We had a nice thunderstorm yesterday in the early evening during dinner. Lights flickered, and we dug out a bunch of candles. Didn't need them, though. It did cool things down a bit.
