I like the word juju 😀

My mittens – one down, a bit more to go

These knit up so quickly – I started these on Thursday (15th) and today I’m halfway up the second. I’ve had a bit of a “thing” for mittens for monthsnow, and I’ve finally got round to knitting some. I wantedto do a flat sock-toe-type decrease but I couldn’t figure out how to do it with a set of four DPNs, so I just did even decreases throughout the round instead.


I started these in FEBRUARY and I only finished them last week. They’d been languishing in a drawer, only needing ends to be weaved. How daft am I?! Anyway, I’ve worn them every day this week because it’s been so damn cold here – I’ve worn four jumpers every day.

My first sock

The pocket scales that I bought from eBay finally arrived this week, so I was able to weigh my sock yarn to see where the middle of the ball is. To be honest, I can’t be bothered to knit half the yarn in this sock because it’ll be really long and I’ll need to add inceases, which is just going to complicate matters, so I’ve started the ribbing anyway. I’ll probably find something to do with the left over yarn (ha!).

Azure Allure sleeve #1

Finally finished the first sleeve, I just have the second sleeve to knit now, and then I can sew it all together! I’m worried the body will be too short, but I suppose I can just pick up the stitches along the bottom edge and knit a few more rows.

Hmmm… I think I’m all out for now! But I’m in a very positive mood 😀

  1. wow what great projects, looks like you’ve been busy. I have had zero time to knit, just zilch. i love the colours of the gloves & mittens together, and have also been wearing 4 jumpers every day! we had a school trip to kew gardens on fri and it was so bloody cold that the grass and the leaves were frozen, i counted and discovered that i had 7 layers on!

    well it included my bra, but even so.
