I haven't posted in a while but thought I'd share a couple of my recent finished objects. I've been pushing myself and trying to learn new things.

The first is Maimu's Mittens knitted on size 2 DPNs with Rauma Finullgarn - the pattern is from the book Folk Knitting in Estonia by Nancy Bush:

The second is the Path of Flowers Stole by Chrissy Gardiner (available as a paid download from Gardiner Yarn Works). It is knit from Alpaca with a Twist Fino on size 4 Addi Lace Turbos.

Great projects!! It looks like you have been learning lots. Beautiful stole. I really like the little cabled look on the mittens where it has the red and black and the line of black and white right next to that. Lovely color work on the palm part.

Ohhhhhhh...so wonderful! Fair Isle knitting is not easy! And you did great work! I also love the stole!

AND...I love your chair and paneling! It has a Frank Lloyd Wright flavor, whose designs are truly remarkable!

Thanks for sharing everything!!!
