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

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!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / owl-y french press cozy on: February 10, 2011 02:08:58 PM
my friend loves her french press. a lot. she brings it to work with her and everything. i figured a french press cozy would be a good present for her (although she drinks so much coffee i'm not sure she leaves any in the french press for a cozy to keep warm).

i made up my own design because i didn't find any patterns that struck my fancy.

the eyes look a little googly in the first picture - it makes me laugh.

here's an up close of one of the owl cables:

it has an owl cable on each side, and three regular cables evenly spaced between. it holds on with three braided ties. the first picture is more accurate color-wise.

if for any reason you want to read more or see extra pics, the blog post is here : http://wistfulplying.blogspot.com/2011/02/anissas-french-press-cozy-because.html

hope you like it!
