Project 1 is in my bag, waiting for me to finally weave in the ends. However, I have been thinking about project 2 (mittens, gloves or socks with cables) for over a week now since Sheri first announced the project.
I wasn't ready to leave behind 2 color knitting and I've been looking for a doable project that won't be too time consuming, so I can work on other things too. I think I have finally found it.
2 color cabled mittens from the February Lady lady, Pamela Wynne. They are made of awesome and the world needs more fun mittens. I just placed my order for enough yarn to make 2 pairs (sounds decadent, but hey Cascade 220 is super affordable). A purple and yellow pair for me and a Black and yellow (well, goldenrod) pair for my Hufflepuffer. I might attempt to make one of the pairs convertible, but I am often cold enough that I will simply wear a pair of gloves underneath regardless.
In other news, I finished the front and the back of my husband's Hufflepuff house sweater. Sleeve 1 is underway. I need to finish sleeve 1 by the end of the weekend if I am going to do sleeve 2 and finish the sweater before we go to see the last Harry Potter movie. Repeat after me: Sleep is a crutch for the weak.
