So, I didn’t spend the entire weekend playing with Ravelry

I might have, but in the process of uploading all the projects that I had photos of (Neil took the camera) I rediscovered the sleeping Anemoi and thought since the days are getting cooler I should get back to it.


It’s amazing what a difference a little experience makes - I started these at Christmas time and they were my first ‘proper’ colourwork project. I had trouble with tension, ripping out loads and tinkering with just about every row due to too-tight stitches. They were abandoned at the end of January as the days got warmer: one finished, one just started.

Then yesterday - whee! I’m a colourwork expert now and I knocked off the remaining 3/4 of the second mitten in a few hours :-D

What to do next?…

Maybe this?

Or this?!

Or a new design I’m tossing around in my head at the moment - all Zoe’s fault: I followed her to IKnit on Saturday cause I had nothing better to do and somehow I came home with three balls of yarn that I had no intention of buying. Hmmm.

P.S. More pictures when I have a camera again.

    Oops! Sorry - I’ve updated the link to go to the designer’s blog instead now.

    The socks! The socks! The hat won’t suit me… I mean it won’t suit YOU. *phew!*

    Oh I wish I hadn’t looked at that pattern for Smoke Signals …

    Errr … Rising Smoke is ACTUALLY what I meant to say. =)

    I love the hat. Definitely need to bookmark that pattern. (and it needs to get added to ravelry so I can add it to my queue, too!) :-)

    And your anemoi look fabulous. I need to do some mittens with colourwork, they do all look fun….but maybe I’ll try your pretty pattern! Will have to rummage through the stash and see if there’s something appropriate, or if it needs to wait for my next purchase.
