WIP Wednesday.

What I am working on these days.

My mittens. One done to the thumb, the other nearly so.

Wip my mittens

I have never cared for that method of finishing a mitten where it comes to a point, but I was at a loss for a better one. I have since discovered a decrease method I like better; perhaps I'll frog that last 1.5" and redo it.

Child's washable wool hat and mitten set, due a week from today for a community project.

The mitten is the Target Mitten pattern from Norah Gaughan's Knitting Nature. I hope it does not require a child with a hand mounted at 90˚ to her hand to fit. First mitten done, second still requires a thumb. Hat, ribbing done; it will be the Sunflower Tam from that same book. I have a plan to make it even more amazing than the original. Hat and mittens knit from more leftovers, mostly from the same Berrocco Vintage that was left over from the baby sweater. Knit from stash, yay!

This is from Thanksgiving Day, when Alex and Matthew were making cornbread to go with the enchiladas. Matthew posed his elbow thusly so I could get an action shot of him breaking an egg.

    The color bubbles on the mittens came out really well! I like pointed tops, but maybe that’s just because so many Selbu style mittens are finished that way. But round is good, too, and it’s really not that much to rip back.

    I love that Target mitten pattern. Must make some.
    I’m also a round mitten top person. (I use variations on closing a sock toe, which I also like rounded.) Mine look more like the child’s mitten, above, than your cool-bubble mittens.

    Enchiladas for Thanksgiving, I like it. I’m thinking cheese fondue for Christmas.
