After a knitting hiatus, I cast on for Nalu Mitts. I was cruising along and thought to myself, "Self, you should take a picture of the cable-y part to show on your blog. Hmmm. That cable-y part doesn't look at all like the picture." Yeah. I was reading the cable chart right to left and then left to right like you do for flat knitting. Except these mitts are knit in the round. Grrr. To the frog pond I went!
So now I'm back at the cuff. I will say that I'm really loving the Madtosh DK and it's nice to have something on the needles.
In stash-building news, I went into my favorite quilt shop (Karen Gray) and picked up this:
Half yard cuts of several prints from Hope Valley. I really love this line. It looks vintage but still fresh. I think I'm going to use a big chunk of this for a Swoon quilt.
