Elizabeth Zimmerman knits mittens in May in her book Knitter’s Almanac – I’m going to knit mittens in June. Nice chunky ones, easy to transport, small to hold and simple to knit, perfect for a short, almost summer, trip! The store needs a “chunky” weight pattern for mittens. (At least that is my justification!) I’ve got some wonderful chunky wools, Naturally in three, dare I say it, natural tones and Alfa in red and black, an assortment of dpn’s in approriate sizes and a few design idea’s to play with.
We, my husband and I, are off to Ucluelt for 3 days of beach time. I’ve packed my knitting and picked my books, Knitter’s Almanac, a trashy romance/thriller, an interesting science fiction novel, and a novel – I won’t suffer for choice of activity! Hope that you have a great week as well!
