11 days and counting. . . .
Yeah, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 11 days. ELEVEN DAYS!!!! That's less than 2 weeks! Yipppppppeeeeeeeeee! The blue knitters are all going to the movie together. Yee haw! I am still working on HiP and here's the picture to prove it: Only question is; am I going to be able to finish it in time???? I have to make some MAJOR progress as it is getting cold here and I will need a lot more length to be able to wear it properly. You might have noticed that I altered the striping pattern. I wanted a little bit of difference there. I am going to go back to the double striping and then back to the single and then the double once again. That should be about the right length. We'll just have to see.
On the warm hands KAL front, I started my first mitten ever. I did all of this in one day so I am pretty excited about finishing these up quickly. Here's what I have so far: (see picture)
I am using Elsebeth Lavold Angora in Burgundy for the cuffs and the flap opening. The mitten itself is from Mountain Colors Weaver's Wool in the Pine Needle colorway. Isn't it cool? I still have to kitchener the top, add the thumb and add the burgundy openings stitches (so there isn't a gaping hole) for the fingers flap.
Here's another shot of it (backside of the hand) with the finger flap up. I really like the idea of the flap so that I can use my fingers if I choose. The angora ribbed beautifully, is snug but soft at the wrist and keeps things warm and dry. I can't WAIT to get these done!
I can't choose what to knit on every night. I want to knit on them all!!
