WIP Wednesday #24 - Knitting Machine
I have been one busy little knitter lately.
My Ode to Hedwig is finished and blocked but awaiting buttons so you will have to wait a little longer to see it - hopefully by next Friday. I am excited to say, it appears that my first attempt at an adult sweater has resulted it an actual wearable garment. Yippee! I am very willing, however, to wait a loooooooooongg time for weather cold enough to justify wearing it.
You may remember when I made this hat for my cousin as a start to my Christmas knitting. This week I have finally knit the fingerless mittens to go with it. I am thrilled that I found the perfect pattern in the same spirit as the hat.
Just a sneak peak as I will definitely have these done for a big unveiling for FO Friday.
In the meantime, I am winding this beautiful skein of Malabrigo Sock to start on this at my Craft Night tonight. I think I will knit it with these modifications.
Is it pretty?
Ok, I'm off to find 32 buttons for owl's eyes... wish me luck - I suspect I'm going to need it!
I will be back to check out what else is going on over on Tami's blog for WIP Wednesday a little later. I hope you do too!
