So I've been pretty busy the last two weeks which is why I haven't had the chance to post anything - sorry! Last Monday was my GRADUATION! It was a really lovely day but very tiring and I was more than ready for a good nights sleep. This weekend we celebrated my little brothers birthday and so a trip home was needed. Harry and I made him a baked cheesecake from one of my favourite cookbooks - Tea With Bea.
Last week I finished these mittens, ready for the autumn. I found the pattern on raverly as a free download - Marlene's Mittens. The pattern was easy to follow and I now have such a comfy and warm pair of mittens. It involves working a broken rib - one row rib followed by one row knit. They were so quick to knit particularly as 5mm dpns as used.
I purchased the yarn from Wool in Bath a few months ago (it is such a lovely shop with an amazing selection) and is Debbie Bliss Riva in Woodland (027). The yarn produces a lovely heathery colour and texture which was the reason I fell in love with it first and just had to buy it!
I have now moved onto three knitting projects at the same time, alternating between them when I crash in front of the TV after work. Stay tuned for these still to come!
