2010 - FO 21
Started: Last week and only took 2.5 hours for 1 mitt
Yarn: Zara (rose color) 1 ball
My friend Katt asked me if I would like to do a bit of test knitting for her. I have test knitted a sock pattern for her but it still needs a little bit of tweaking so I thought I would join in and test knit this fingerless mitt pattern called Idle Hands. It is so easy and I have to admit this is my first time knitting a thumb too! I love the pattern and the Zara yarn is just gorgeous. I always find it so soft and happened to have a ball spare after knitting Isabelle something a long time ago. Katt is very excited about this pattern so I will let you all know when she releases it. She also designed the rastacat hat which I knit for Isabelle a few months ago and that was another fabulous pattern. I can see these mitts making their way into a few xmas pressies this year. Thanks Katt for letting me test knit these!
Thanks to everyone who left wonderful birthday comments for Isabelle too, she loved reading them and thought it was quite nice that so many of my bloggy friends wished her happy birthday. The party went well and then on Monday I took her birthday shopping. She surprised me and actually bought herself some lovely cute clothes, whereas I thought she would buy some toys!
