Actual knitting

You may recall that I went on a trip (the one I won't stop talking about). Well, on the overseas flight, my little hands were busy with some very little needles, creating Library Mitts -- the very first pattern I created all by myself. This isn't saying much since there are lots of fingerless mitten patterns out there to inspire me, but still. Here they are, made from KnitCol. They keep my paws warm while reading, typing and meticusouly arranging and rearranging. Starting from the bottom, it's a k2p2 rib for one inch, then k for 9 inches, set aside 16 stitches for the thumb, knit to the top of your palms, k2p2 for one more inch and cast off. Go back to the thumb and k 4 rounds.



And then there's my upcoming niece! I made this hat and matching booties for her. The hat pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts and the booties are a popular Ravelry pattern.

It is useful to try everything in practice anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)
