What’s in my knitting bag?

I fell in love with with these ‘Winterwonderland Mitts’ from Knit for Victory when I saw them on Pinterest. I was in the middle of my Christmas knitting but I went to Clare’s and bought the yarn anyway.

I’ve been knitting them on and off since. I knitted 3 cowls and a jacket for Dougie and did some sewing as well but now I seriously have to get back to the mitts before we run out of mitt weather!

Long, fingerless mitts.

I can’t remember the last time I knitted on 4 needles (well 5 when you count the cable needle) but I’m enjoying it. I’ve had a few hiccoughs on the way, but only because I didn’t read far enough ahead on the pattern. I’m a complete novice when it comes to following patterns on my iPad but I’ve got a list of projects longer than the mitts and growing daily, so I’m going to get used to it!

Another fab Pinterest idea.

I saw this holder for DPNs on Pinterest and an abiding memory of knitting in the round was having to pick up stitches before beginning every session. It’s made with a strip of elastic with fabric pockets. Its a fantastic little tool but I would make an improvement if I make another one. The points of the needles poke their way through so I’d reinforce the folded ends, I’ll be thinking about the how in the meantime.

Well one glove down so time to stop blogging and start knitting……
