Cast off, cast on

Once again joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams for her Tuesday Keep Calm Craft On.  This week, I’m on a fingerless glove-roll, and I’m LOVING it!  After working on sweaters for the last year or so, it is SO satisfying to cast on a project and be done with it a few days later.  Instant gratification!

Last week, I finished some fingerless mitts for my husband.  They came out really nicely, but were slightly too big.  Felting to the rescue!  We tossed them in the wash and then in the dryer, and now they are just about right.  The felting did make the cable pattern a little less pronounced, but on the other hand, they feel very sturdy, which is a very good thing for my very hands-on husband.

With that project complete, I decided that it was time for me to have a pair of fingerless mitts of my very own.  Two years ago I started the gorgeous Fetching pattern, but frogged the whole thing after I realized it was way too big for my small hands.  This time, I’m working with a smaller needle and eliminating a few stitches.  They are GORGEOUS!  I’m using Debbie Bliss Aran Cashmerino, and it is so yummy.  I think I’m in love.

What are you knitting right now?
