That’s right. The act of knitting cruiser.
I knit this mitten 1.5 times because I misread the pattern and put the thumb at a weird place, and even with the extra knitting, I started this mitten on Tuesday night and knit the thumb Wedneday night after hosting an impromptu dinner party. Cruiser is the right name for these mittens! (Details: Malabrigo in Olive, size 6 dpns.) I’m hoping these will also be for the boy, particularly becuase I’m not sure how well the socks will wear, and these will definitely do some solid warming work this winter. I’m knitting the largest size, but as I don’t have any hand measurements to go on, and these fit me pretty well, I’m worried. I’m going to block them aggressively once I knit mitten numbah 2, and see what happens. I do think I’m due for some malabrigo mittens…
How about more food pictures from week #2 of paper-writing?
Food mill in action.
Tada! Smooth applesauce!
Tofu, avocado and brown rice sushi. Delicious.
Alright, time to go cast on for the second mitten! I imagine I’ll be posting more about my holiday knitting decisions soon, mostly because I’m still deciding…
Pretty mitten! My Mitten and Glove queue is growing by the day. So many cool patterns to work up!
Homemade sushi and applesauce? COOL!
The mittens look so warm and I really like that fishbone cable pattern. You sure you don’t want to just keep them? :)
