I finished my Campanula Mitts after Knitters' Night Out at Heavenly Creations last week. I actually started these last fall, after receiving the yarn in a swap package from the lovely Catherine at Mama Llama Yarn.
Campanula Mitts (Ravlink):
Yarn: Noro Silver Thaw Colorway "1"
Needles: Size 7
Pattern: Campanula Mitts by Sara Morris
Thoughts: It was a nicely written pattern, easy to follow with a nice end result.
Mods: Well there are a few, and since I didn't write anything down (other than the number of stitches I cast on) the two mitts didn't end up exactly the same. That's okay, though you can't really tell when I'm wearing them. I had a larger gauge so I only cast on 30 stitches, and I did fewer gusset increases. I think I did fewer lace repeats also.
So, I finished Campanula Mitts, Hey, Teach!, and Ishbel all in one week. I went a little crazy casting on some new projects, although not all of them have succeeded. I'm working on Decimal (which I technically cast on during spring break, but I didn't get much further than the ribbing on the sleeve).
I also cast on some Man Socks, with some Fortissima and some Brown Sheep fingering. They're going well. The Man Socks (Ravlink) don't have a pattern, I just started in 1X1 rib and transitioned into 3X1 rib. Hopefully I'll have enough yarn for size 13 feet. I only have one ball of the main color (tan). I think I may have made the leg too long, but we'll see. They might have really long blue toes. ;-)
contest! Comments here count too. ;-) I thought, though, I'd pose a question for those who knit socks (so you don't just have to leave an "Oh, I like ****!" comment ;-]) What kind of heel do you prefer? Why?
