fair isle mittens and lace stole
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.

Both of these are GREAT! Nice work and I'm partial to the lace (Georgeous color) but very impressed with the mittens!

Holy cow and a half! What a fantastic job on both! I am in awe! Seriously, tell me you have been knitting for years and years or I will feel incredibly inadequate!
