60 quick knitsTuesday, May 11, 2010
Twenty hats, twenty scarves, twenty mittens in cascade 220. Yep, an entire book devoted to one yarn. I like that. I also really like cascade 220. I find it to be a good quality yarn, affordable (it looks like webs is having a sale), and comes in just about every color under the sun. And speaking of the sun, I find these small "tote around" projects to be the perfect projects for summer knitting.
I'm absolutely head over heals for those plaid mittens. They sort of remind me of a vintage thermos. Mittens for adults and children. Fair Isle mittens, bird cage mittens, cable cuff mittens, bunny mittens, tweed mittens, checkered mittens, the list goes on.
Libby has been wanting me to make her a beret and I think I finally found a pattern she likes. (It just so happens I have a hank of off white in the stash.) Hats for adults and children. Hats with bobbles, cables, patterns and stripes.
Fingerless gloves fall into that mitten category. I have always wanted to make myself a pair of those flip top mittens. I think I found the perfect pattern.
