My First Knit-Along

Thanks to a note from Genevieve, I've finally taken the challenge (for me) to join a Knit Along.  The hardest part for me is staying on a schedule when it comes to crafting.  I'm so easily distracted that I hate to promise anything in advance (that is why all my shop items are ready-to-ship, hehe).

So I'm very excited to say that I have *almost* completed this personal challenge of mine.

I've been re-working the pattern I'm following due to my lack of size-1 knitting needles (I'm using my great-grandmother's size-3) and I think I've ripped it out 3 or 4 times now.

.... not including the last 3 of the decrease at the top. .... I can't wait to see how quick I can whip up its pair.... :)

I wish I better understood the protocol when it comes to linking up, but I'll admit I've only seen it on Field Wonderful's blog, so I hope no one minds....

Today (or these last two weeks, rather) I'm knitting along with LuvintheMommyhood in her Warm up to Winter Knit Along.

I can't wait to show off the pair once they are off the needles :]

Is anyone else doing a knit along?


  1. Those are looking so beautiful!! I've never made actual mittens before, only fingerless. Hope to make some soon. Love the color you're using. Random question: Do you have a favorite color?


  2. Thanks!! I'm so excited to have a finished pair :)
    My all-time-favorite color is blue (pretty much any shade); otherwise, I love bright, summery colors of pink/yellow/orange & spring-green (if you couldn't tell from a lot of my recent shop items, hehe).

    How about you?

  3. Received the ear warmer love itwhen I get over my cod ill take pics thanks annie

  4. Yay! So glad to hear you like it! Sorry about being sick :( I hope it helps keep you warm & the germs away. Can't wait to see you wearing it :]

  5. They are comming along nicely. They look super soft and cuddly, just right for winter.
