Thene I was finished with my first mittens I have ever knitted, and there will defiantly be more to come ;)
I have never knitted mittens before, so when I was so lucky to win a yarn packet with Tumi from Rauma from Frida alias Silkesauen. Frida is also the designer to Reveenka, that is in Votter fra Eventyrskogen and here they are, the first mitten I have knitted. The right mitten to Revvenka :) I used knitting needles 3.5 mm, that is in the limit for me. So need for the future, to knit with smaller needles. Even so, I love to knit with Rauma’s Tumi yarn 50%wool&alpakka.
For November, I choosed Sokkelo funny and very easy braid pattern.
The first one I knitted with HK Joy yarn, I misread the pattern. So they ended up a little bit different, then the original. What I learned from that, was that I did not thought it was nice with just knitted inside.
Here they are with my turn of Sokkelo:
and here they are knitted with Jojoland Quartette, color 504, this yarn is discounted. I also made theme here different, knitted braid inside and ended with i-cord on the top.
Finished with my 2nd pattern of Augusta wristlets, this time as the original pattern say with thumbs ;) I don’t know what yarn it is, but I liked it with how the colors turned up. Sine it is pretty thin, I made theme with 60 st. instead of the standard 50, this way it is a size S.
Wow, aren’t I a lucky girl :) Silkesauen alias Frida, is one of 7 amazing designers that recently published a e-book about mittens: Votter fra Eventyrskogen. With publishing the e-book, Frida has a lottery on here blog, and I won the yarn packet Tumi that is the new yarn from Rauma. So now I am rely going to start knitting mittens, that I never have done before ;)
A friend of mine got a baby girl, so what better to find some of my own handspun angora yarn to knit a couple of baby booties ;) I love to use Christine’s stay on baby booties, because I get the feedback, that they are actually staying on the babies feet :)
