Knitting Notes


I figured I'd start out the year using up some old yarn, so here are some Hexipuffs using my Claudia's Fingering Handpainted Silk 55 yarn.    I'd had it separate from the rest of fingering weight leftover stash since it has so much silk in it, but it occurred to me it would still be fine for hexipuffs, and will bring a nice shot of color into what is otherwise a set of fairly dark, or at least cool, colors in the rest of the hexipuffs.

I also cast on these Handspring mitts, using Tess' Superwash Merino lace.     Finding a mitt pattern in lace weight was cool - I have some definitely chunks of lace weight yarn that aren't big enough to make most traditional shawl, scarf, etc patterns, but will work perfectly for this sized project.
