First FO of 2017 – Wintergreen Mitts in Dartmoor Yarn Company 4ply Shetland/Ryeland blend

When I saw a picture of the Wintergreen Mitts on Instagram I just had to make a pair. But when I checked out the yarn they were knitted in, I realised they were going to be ridiculously pricey, so I decided I’d have to do without them.

However, a short while later, I remembered I had a few small balls of Dartmoor Yarn Company 4ply Shetland/Ryeland blend, left over from other projects.

I was incredibly over-excited at how well the colours went together in this mitt – of course, that is what I intended to achieve when I dyed the Shetland/Ryeland batch. But still, it’s exciting when you see it happen in your knitting.

I love these mitts and they’re a bargain knit if you’ve some left over blues and greens that will blend nicely.

Knitted Santa Sacks: Free knitting patterns for advent – day 21

Still running a day behind – I confess this is because I went to the pub last night. That’s also the reason the fair isle is a little uneven in the centre – I knitted it magic loop when I got back from the pub, where I may have had a few glasses of wine, and forgot to make sure the floats were loose enough between the two sets of stitches on the needles!

Knitted Santa Sacks: Free knitting patterns for advent – day 19

The pace has finally got to me. You may have gathered I’m knitting these as I go along and today’s is a disaster, but no time to rip and knit again. So just to prove I did it, here it is and for a bit of fun, what the heck do you think that white blob in the middle is supposed to be?

I won’t kid myself that anyone wants a pattern for this, If you want a 19th day Santa sack, I haven’t done a plain stocking stitch one, yet, so let’s just pretend that’s what this one is and knit up as a picture one with no picture.
