Knitting – Wednesday WIP – Mittens with a Fair Isle Design

My WIP (work in progress) this week was actually just completed – a pair of mittens for the Pine Ridge children. There is a special drive in the fall to supply each child in the K-12 school with a scarf, hat and pair of mittens. At all times, I have a scarf on one set of needles to work on while watching TV and a mitten on another set of needles to work on during the day when there are no distractions. So far, I have two boxes packed to the brim with warm winter wear. These mittens are from a basic pattern that I developed over the past couple of years and this time I added a Fair Isle design.

I finished my WIP from last week, a child’s scarf in Bubble Gum and sparkly white yarn, using the Ridge stitch.

Knitting – Wednesday WIP – Child’s Scarf

My WIP (work in progress) this week is a child’s scarf made in a favorite pattern, #147 on the New-Stitch-A-Day site.  This is an easy slip-stitch pattern that can be changed by count or color to give different two-color designs.  Free pattern is found here:  http://newstitchaday.com/how-to-knit-the-ridge-check-stitch/

I’m using #7 needles with a #4 white sparkly yarn and Lion Brand Lb. of Love #4 Bubblegum yarn.

Finished last week:

Used bulky #5 Premier Deborah Norville Collection yarn in a variegated Spring color and #9 circular needles. The turtleneck collar is turned down halfway in this photo.  This is a free Ravelry pattern:

I also used the same pattern and needles to make another neckwarmer from bulky #5 Premier Deborah Norville Collection yarn in a variegated Gold color.

 

The cowls feature a new-to-me crocheted bind-off.
