Starting off the new year with a quick knit, mittens.  Pattern is Herringbone Mittens with Poms and is available for free on Ravelry.  The pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn, however I used Briggs & Little Tuffy, I used 4mm needles for the cuff, and 5mm for hand.  I should have nice warm hands for snow shoeing this season.


Happy knitting,



Still Knitting

Plain socks knitted with Noro’s Silk Garden.  I was worried I was going to run out of yarn for these socks so I knitted them with a shadow wrap heel.
