Scarf for Bella Mittens

May 17, 2009

For those of you who are looking for a food critique, we didn’t go anywhere new last night.   We went to Smith’s again.  As always, the food was wonderful.  Three of us had stuffed scallops and Paul had stuffed chicken.  He always has to be different.  The spinach, asparagus, Cole slaw and macaroni and cheese were perfect.  And s o were the rolls.

I made this to go with the Bella Mittens.  I had most of a skein left and I was still able to make a four foot scarf.  The cable pattern made it possible to slip one end into the other at any position.  I cast on 18 stitches.  I knit three stitches, did the cable, knit three stitches.   It was simple.  I used a size ten needle.

Bella Mittens

February 16, 2009

p1010796The finished the Bella Mittens this morning.  It’s a free pattern.  They went up fast.  I’d say it took me about three movies to finish.  The pattern calls for the one long circular needle method.  I have tried that, but it wasn’t for me.  I did it on double points.  It’s what I’m used to working on.   The pattern itself was well written and easy to follow.  I’d recommend it to anyone.  The yarn is 100% wool that I bought at MD Sheep & Wool one year.  She comes every year and all her  yarn is like this.  I believe she is from Vermont, but I can’t for the life of me remember the name.

Doug painted the ceiling this afternoon while I was at knitting group.  Tomorrow, we are going to look at wall paint.  Onece we are finished painting, Frank will come back and do the framing.  I’ll be so glad when it’s all finished and we can put everything back the way it belongs.

I hope there’s something interesting on tonight.  I would really like to sit and knit for a while.
