Camp Loopy Project 2: Cabled Cuff Mittens
Yay! Project 1 is done and now on to Project 2 for Camp Loopy...some cabled mittens. I'm using Madelinetosh Vintage in Scarlet. SQUEEEE!!! And...I'm making the Cabled Cuff Mittens from 60 Quick Knits. I loved the combination of the simplistic mitten with these wonderful cabled cuffs.
Yesterday, I met some fabulous knitting friends at Twisted Yarns in Old Town Spring. We did a LOT of shopping at this wonderful local yarn shop and went home with LOTS of squishy goodness. I found a set of square DPNs. I needed some 7s so why not try the square ones by Kollage Yarns? I'm using them with my mittens and ya know...they're okay! I wish they had a little more point to them but I'm happy overall. They felt funny at first...not round...it was strange. LOL But I got used to them pretty quick.
One special surprise yesterday was a set of handmade stitchmarkers by my friend's daughter. It was sooooooo sweet!!! She made me MONKEY stitchmarkers!!! They are AWESOME!! and work great with my mittens. They're doing a great job marking my thumb gusset and round beginning. THANK YOU!!!!!
