Eowyn Mittens

Made these two at a time. There was a bit of a disaster during the gusset where I missed a few of the yo’s on only one mitt, but amazingly I was able to pull back, redo that one, and finish them 2 at a time. Did fewer repeats both in the cuff and after the gusset, because I know my preferences in that sort of thing. (They’re very cozy.)

Honey Cowl 4: violet blue

January 3, 2019

I’m always surprised how fast these go! Also, note to future self: do this on the interchangables, that’s the length that fits best.

Also, this yarn looks amaaaaazing in person but photographs exceptionally poorly. Something about that purply-blue, it’s hard to get the right light for the camera.

Tied Knots

I think it’ll open up more if I block, but very cozy even unblocked.

Yup, much better lightly blocked.

Spa Day Facecloth

December 28, 2018

Did 15 repeats and it looked about square (and I needed a washcloth) so I finished there. However, in use it tends to stretch sideways more than lengthwise, so I think even 17 repeats (as per pattern) is too short, if I make another I’ll do at least that many.

Used just shy of one skein.
