How did I forget to blog these?

It's winter and 85 degrees outside. I must think that if I keep knitting mittens, it will get cold.

These were knitted in November. I was looking for a basic mitten pattern and my friend Mona was just finishing up her pattern. Was that timing or what?

Winter, please come out of hiding!!! I have four new pairs of mittens just waiting to be worn.

Edgar the Monster

Edgar is supposed to be a monster but I think he looks somewhat like a kitty. Test knitting is way fun!

Test Crow

I'm having quite a good time test knitting. This crow is my latest finished object.

Stay tuned for Edgar - more test knitting - in a day or two. :-)

Curly Scarf

This is the January Mystery. After I took the picture I wondered if I was showing off the scarf or the oranges. I like them both.

Test Knitting

There is a test knitting group on Ravelry and I signed up to test these mittens. After a few false starts I ended up with mittens I absolutely love.

They were knitted with Malabrigo Rios. I didn't know Malabrigo had a superwash wool until the lady at the LYS showed it to me. What a fun surprise!! I haven't come across a bad Malabrigo yet.
