after catching up on so many promised gnome hats and with all of the rest/down time around here because of illness, i'm determined to finish up as many wip's in my knitting basket as i can! first up is this sweet little pair of owl mittens that i'm knitting with malabrigo worsted (which i started back in january). i'm following the adult-sized give a hoot mitten pattern (by jocelyn tunney) but using smaller needles to size down for a child (along with a few other mods; see my ravelry notes for specifics). and just like the owl milo i made back in september, i'm using duplicate contrast stitching for the eyes and nose. one down, one to go!
i hope to finish up more wip's over the weekend and next week. :) as for my yarn update this week, i have eight lovely skeins of madelinetosh merino, in the colorful mansfield garden party colorway:
