|yummy yarn, fab pattern|
Regular readers of my blog will recognize this pattern: Susie Roger's Reading Mitts, a favourite of mine and counting this pair, I've knit this pattern three times. This time around I've knit the mitts in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK and they are fabulous! Buttery soft and smooth, the yarn was an absolute pleasure to knit and very luxurious to wear.
Each mitt took about 2/3rds of a 50gr ball, so I'm left with enough to make one more mitt. Which begs the question ... should I buy one more ball to make another matching pair? On the one hand, a pair of these gloves would be a very nice Christmas present for some lucky person on my gift list. But on the other hand, I'm supposed to be on a yarn diet, right? Can I consider it stash-busting if I buy one ball in order to use up two smaller leftover balls?
As you may have guessed from the radio silence on this end, my week was ridiculously busy. What with going into work early and getting home late I've barely had a minute to knit ... or blog. These gloves were pretty much knit in transit. Precious little progress has been made on my vest but hopefully that will change over the course of the weekend. In fact, maybe that's what I should do next? Hmmmm. Knitting? Or laundry?
