I Like to Have Warm Ears

Another quick project, an ear warmer for me, off my needles today.

Yarn: Trendsetter TONALITA. It is a 32% wool, 48% acrylic yarn. Soft and shiny. I bought it at Village Yarns' (sorry no website) year-end sale for $3.00, and didn't even use the whole ball to make this (maybe 3/4 of it or a little more). What a deal!

Pattern: My own. I knit alternating bands of stockinette and reverse stockinette, shorter rows at the bottom and then increasing once past the neck. Then reversed shaping on the other side and did a three needle bind off with the cast-on edge (just picked the stitches back up). It is nice and stretchy, stays in place, and covers my ears completely.

My First FO of 2008

This week saw the first project of 2008 off the needles. Started and finished in three days, and I love them.

Wrist Warmers
My own pattern, a simple 3x2 rib with a seed stitch top and a slit thumb. Knit in the round on 3.5mm dpns, except for the thumb section which is worked back and forth.

Yarn: the delicious elann.com Peruvian Baby Silk, in Gentle Violet. The colour is more purple, rather than the blue my camera shows. So soft and warm.
