hi crafters!

here are some of my recent FOs.


They are susie's reading mitts from Dancing Ewe Yarns. The pattern was simple to follow but there are a few errors in it i think.
the only thing i didn't like about this project was my tension was uneven and they look kind of wonky, but not when they are being worn.
here's the pattern link
http://www.dancingewe-yarns.com/cgi/commerce.cgi?display=action&emptyoverride=yes&template=PDGCommTemplates/DE/freepatterns.html

next up is Meret from Woolly Wormhead


i used a skein of malabrigo worsted that i had lying around. this pattern knit up really quickly and is really pretty!

finally is another pair of mitts -

These are Cozy Thermal Mitts - i found the pattern on Ravelry. I had trouble making my gauge fit - i even went down 2 needle sizes and they are still a little big. I'm giving them to a friend for his birthday. I used 2 skeins of Knit Picks Shamrock i had stashed away.

hope you like it!

Great FOs! I love your Susie reading mitts! They are so comfortable and cozy (currently wearing my pair as I type!)
