Well, it seems as though Spring time is here so, before I put all of my winter goodies away, I wanted to photo document my winter 2010 knitting projects.
The infamous OWLS sweater, the infamous Bella's mittens, and a plain old butterfly stitch hat.
The only mod I did on this sweater was to make the cuffs longer and add thumb holes. Really nice for my chilly office. If I don't want the fingerless mits feature, I can just fold the cuffs up.
If I had to do anything different, I think that next time I would make the decreases on the side instead of in the back. Also, I used Knit Picks Swish Worsted Yarn in 100% Superwash Marino. It was very reasonably priced but WOW does it pill. I have to shave it every three wearings and contrary to the "super wash" tag, it is NOT washable.
I made Bella's mittens (like everyone else in the world) not because i'm a Twilight fan but because I truly love the pattern.
Again I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes and again, I wish I hadn't. Too bad I have a hole tub full of this stuff.
my least favorite project of the season but it did the job.
Conclusion: I was very warm and toasty this winter!
I have a matching scarf on the needles right now to be completed sometime in 2011
