Much of the recent knitting has been Christmas presents, so the details are under wraps for several more months. I can, however, share this:
with you, because I'm pretty sure the recipient is not a reader. Just in case, I'll keep the identity secret. Together, this hat and fingerless mitt set comes in at 215 yards of handspun. The patterns are just a basic tam and mitttens from Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns.
I really can't sing the praises of that book enough. I have lots of pattern books and stitch dictionaries, yet I always find myself going back to the Ann Budd book. Even more so since I started spinning my own yarn and like to let the yarn take center stage in a project.
