Eine Kleine Gestrickte Zwischenmusik

Just a little knitting interlude...

While helping a friend learn to quilt last weekend, I was able to finish up a few knitting projects that had been lingering in their last stages of completion. Two pairs of mittens started in 2oo8, plus one started this year.

The brown ones based on the Quo Vadis pattern and made with Patons Classic Wool; the white ones are Lovikkas made with Järbo yarn (free pattern på svenska on their site); and the grey ones are improvised using Patons Shetland Chunky (not enough wool content, in my opinion, but loved the yellow flecks).

Finishing is fun - I should do it more often! I haven't set any kind of resolution, but I would like to get both my knitting and quilting UFOs under control this year.

A Picture Perfect Day!

I wonder if it's too crazy to set a goal of finishing one large project a month this year? Probably.
