I’ve completed my first two projects for the gift along!
First, is pdxknitterati’s Kilter. I used Malabrigo Silky Merino in Lavanda. It turned out very nice! I was a little worried that I’d run out of yarn, so I sped up the crown decreases a bit. Here’s a shot of the back. I can see my decreases were a little loose, but I’m okay with it anyway.
My second finished project is an Abundant Cowl by mangobadango. I used Knit Picks Preciosa in the Crest colorway. This is a very soft and squishy yarn. It’s a single and reminds me of Malabrigo Worsted – maybe a bit thicker. It was a very easy knit and I finished in two days!
I’ve cast on for two more gift along projects. First is the Mount Rundle Mittens by Kate Bostwick of Cowtownknits. I favorited this pattern the first time I saw it and I am loving it! I had a bit of a struggle at the beginning – knitter error – but am moving along with ease now. I’m using Knit Picks palette in Regal and Tranquil. I’m very happy with the color contrast! I can’t wait to finish the first mitten. Maybe tonight?
I don’t have a picture of the second cast on. I plan a feature of the designer though, so I’ll save it for a separate post!
In the meantime, Bridget is keeping busy.
