Then again, maybe not February 13, 2011

I’m still not entirely sure why I changed my mind and continued working on the Alice mittens, but I did. I discovered in the process that a. I do have enough yarn, it’s just a strange skein shape and felt very flat, but weighing it convinced me that there’s plenty, and b. it fits- well, it’s big, but only a little bit, and with the lining that’s a good thing. I spent all of yesterday and today on this project and I’m past the thumb gusset on the lining.

 

I do plan on taking a break once this one mitten is done. I have to have the other one finished by end of March, but it’s barely mid-February yet, so I have time. Besides, I want to work on these.

I’m calling these my double scoop socks, because the colors are spot on for neapolitan ice cream. It’s Felici self-striping in sport weight from Knitpicks, so they should work up quickly. I’m just doing simple stockinette toe-ups. I might do a picot bind-off, because the eye-searing strawberry pink isn’t girly enough for me apparently. Go big or go home, right?

    Those Alice mittens are going to be stunners! I’m glad you didn’t give up on them. As for those socks, they are a departure from your usual, but it looks like they will be super cute.
