#49: 2013 fingerless mittens
Pattern: a variation of the toast pattern
Yarn Used: leftovers of ONline Linie 310 Alpaca (100% Alpaca)
Needles: 4.5mm DPNs
Modifications: 2x2 ribbing and added some colorwork
Note: I wanted to get rid off some of my Alpaca stash so I knitted another pair of fingerless mittens. I added some colorwork to celebrate the new year. I'll be wearing these for New Year's Eve :)
#50 & 51: Calorimetry
Pattern: Calorimetry by Kathryn Schoendorf
Yarn Used: 1/2 skein of unknown Noro yarn (worsted weight)
Needles: 5mm circular needles
Modifications: CO 92 / 88 stitches
Note: Another project that was in my queue forever. My mom had a skein of unknown Noro yarn left (it's worsted weight and soft) so i decided to make a calorimetry because it's perfect for Noro! I only wanted to knit one but I had 22grams left - just enough to make another (slightly smaller) calorimetry! For the second one I casted on 88 stitches which was still plenty.
#52: super-soft Burberry Inspired Cowl
Yarn Used: 0.8 skeins of Aslan Trends Royal Alpaca (100% Alpaca)
Needles: 6mm circular needles
Modifications: 4 repeats
Note: I bought one skein of the softest alpaca yarn you can imagine. Seriously, imagine the softest fiber you can think of and add some extra softness and you get a slight idea of what this yarn feels like. It's the softest fiber I've ever knitted with. I've had this yarn in my stash since January. After almost one year of occasional cuddles I finally decided to knit another burberry inspired cowl. I knitted one last year but it turned out quite big and the yarn isn't nearly as soft as the royal alpaca.
These are projects #49-52
As part of my 2012 goals, I want to finish 52 knitted items this year. You can see all the items I knitted so far on my blog or on ravelry.
