One such project is Susie's Reading Mitts by Janelle Masters. I had 3 skeins of Blue Sky Baby Alpaca remaining from this project and think these mitts are a perfect use for 1 1/2 skeins of such a soft yummy yarn. This will be project #7 using yarn from my stash this year! These mitts were started on Friday night and the first of the pair was completed on Saturday. The mitt was started using #5 needles, but after the first lace pattern, I decided the stitches were way too loose and open so the ripping began and the piece was started again using #4 needles...with much better results that time round!!!
My plan is to start the mate and work thru the first lace pattern and complete the project on my trip to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Show. Oh..I didn't tell I was going this year???? I'm going with a group from a LYS...hope to see some of you there!
In case you are wondering what the plans are for the remaining 1 1/2 skeins, I plan to knit a hat....perhaps this hat! Yes, another quick fix!
The second QF is the Two Row Scarf. This is a pattern designed by a knitting friend I met here
