Ederra Shawlette/Mittens Set is Up for Testing

18 Oct

I’m glad to announce that the Ederra set is now ready to be tested. Which means that the patterns should be available in about 10 days or so. Stay tuned…

First Ederra Mitten is Finished

12 Oct

I decided to make them really close fitting mittens as I really like how it looks and feels on the hand. Here are some pictures of the completed mitten

Fingerless Mitts Have Become Mittens

11 Oct

I was planning to do fingerless mitts to match my Ederra shawlette but changed my mind as I was knitting them and went for mittens instead. It just seemed like a better solution. I’m almost done knitting the first mitten, I only have the thumb left to do. I’m still unsure how exactly the thumb will be. A lot of my designing ends up being improvised as I go…

Ederra Shawlette

10 Oct

I finished knitting a shawlette with my beautiful Wollmeise brown yarn and am now working on a pair of fingerless mittens to match it. When these are finished too, the patterns will be test knitted and then published. I really like how the shawlette has turned out! Its name is Ederra, that is Basque for beautiful.

Autumn Knitting

5 Oct

Autumn is here and, with it, a new knitting enthusiasm from me! Summer is just a bit too hot to be excited to knit.

Yesterday, I started knitting on a new design with a beautiful Wollmeise yarn in an autumn shade (Spice Market colourway), very appropriate for the season. I’m very excited about how this is turning out, I love the colour!

Here are a couple of preview pictures…
