In Sight

The finish line is in sight!  I am finishing up a custom order as we speak and begin working diligently on the sweater for Ellette.  I still have a small amount of the Phedre mittens to complete and put in the mail before we leave on Thursday, but Hope springs eternal.

Observe:

This is the Honey Cowl by Madelintosh.  I absolutely adore their yarns.  Although, the yarn I used was actually Lana Bambu from Cascade (if you follow the link, the color I used is number 17.)  I used two skeins to make a fat cowl long enough to wrap twice.  And I dare not say who this lovely little piece is for, lest the recipient be reading and spoil the surprise.

I also had Ellette photograph the gifts for Odin’s mother.

This is the Leafy Muff, from Jane Austen Knits (which I am totally in love with.  I want to make just about everything in the publication!).  I believe the outer is Malabrigo, held double and the inner is Ariosa, by Classic Elite Yarns.  It’s a supersoft merino cashmere blend that I find delicious.  I know his mom is going to love it.

These are the mitts to go with the muff.  Belladonna, which is a wonderful pattern offered by Knit Picks.  This was relatively easy to knit up.  The most tedious portion was working the lace detail around the cuff.  After that, however, it was a piece of cake and went so quickly.

And for the record, I was totally freezing my bum off standing on the snowy beach with no jacket on just to get good photos of the knitting.
