Hi! I am quite late in posting this, but I finished this just before the new year:
Pattern: Urban Necessity by Colleen Michele Meagher
For knit along: Peaceful Palms
Needles: #6 Boye, aluminum
Yarn: KnitPicks Wool of the Andes
Other post on this project: Fingers
Modifications: Seed stitch instead of ribbing around the base of the mitten cap. If I made these again I'd do ribbing on the inside only and plain on the outside, since seed stitch has a tendency to bulge a little. Also, I didn't do the cable pattern on the outside of the mitten cap because I couldn't seem to figure out where the chart was to do that. Hmm.
They are for my brother-in-law, Keith.
Just before leaving for our two week Christmas vacation up north, I made and mailed these to Sarah, my blogging partner. They were her "prize" for winning the URL contest I had for this site a bunch of months ago. (Sorry it's so late!)
Cute little linen bag to hold them in:
Of course I made a second set for myself. =)
Also, on New Year's Eve I finally colored my hair "interestingly" again. It always used to be blue, purple, yellow or some such funness, but since getting pregnant with my first little guy, I haven't been able to do too much of that. So while I've got the chance, I had my husband do this for me:
I almost feel a little silly doing something like this at age 25, but from the front it looks pretty "normal" (although, what is normal anyway?), and I like it, reguardless.
Over my shoulder in the picture you can see the top of Mr E's head. He was in the sling, which makes me look like a little bit of a hunchback from this angle. =)
