Lattice Mittens

The weather has been getting colder here over the last week or two and I figured I better make myself some mittens! This is actually the first time I’ve complete a knit project for myself. All my other knitting has been for my kids, family and friends.

I was very excited to finish these. They are my own design and I really had to sit and think about how to get the lattice pattern on the back of both mittens.

The finished measurements are:
From cuff to fingertip – 9 1/2”
From beginning of palm to fingertip – 6 3/4”

Fits hand up to 7 1/4” from bottom of palm to fingertip

You can purchase this pattern on Ravelry or Craftsy.

Finished: Flax for Naomi

Started: October 6, 2017
Finished: October 26, 2017

Pattern: Flax by Tin Can Knits
Purchased from: Free on Ravelry

This is my second completed sweater. I am so excited. I love the way it came out, I think it’s absolutely adorable. This is the same pattern I used for Hannah’s sweater, but this time I added stripes and skipped the garter ridge down the sleeves.

Ignore the pajamas!!! It seems to fit her nicely, though my cousin tells me she thinks I should have made it longer, like to cover her behind.

I’m still working on my Light Rain sweater but haven’t made a whole lot of progress on it. I didn’t knit at all this weekend. I spent the weekend re-skeining yarn and dying yarn. Meh. I may never finish my own sweater…

Finished: Hat for my Dad

I started this hat for my Dad on October 19, and managed to finish it on October 22. It took a bit longer than I would have liked, but that’s just life I guess.

My husband tried it on multiple times for me while I was knitting. It fits him nice and snug so it should fit my Dad just fine. I just need to wash it and then I can mail it off to him

I didn’t use any specific pattern, I pulled many parts from many patterns, picking and choosing and went from there. I did write it out as I went. So if you’re interested in a men’s size worsted weight winter-type hat with some striping, you can download the FREE pdf pattern here.
