Today's a great day for knitting--it's snowing! No violin lessons today. Can you say "winter weather wimp?" That would be me.
This Malabrigo mitt is one thing I'm working on today. I've made these before, but in the 4 st gauge. I thought that the yarn might work better at 5 sts, so this is the test pair. They are really nice looking, and I think they'll wear better and longer. They take longer to knit at this gauge, but I'm a fan.
This sock will soon belong to Baylee. The other sock is underway, and I noticed something really fun about the Lion Brand Magic Stripes: the color pattern repeat is quite long. It doesn't repeat until that blue section close to the toe. Long pattern repeats are so much fun to work with in sock yarns.
Henry decided to get involved in the freeform doodles. He's so helpful.
