Still at it. . . . .

I went away at the weekend for just one night to the ladies retreat at church! I thought I might get a little knitting done so I packed Summertime Tunic to take with me (endless st st going on with this project! - does it ever end?) I was only there until Saturday afternoon and I really didn't have time to knit at all!

So once I was home I picked up my camisole again, still plodding on with the lace (about 3 more inches to go on the back, then still the front piece to do). In the meantime I finished off my second pair of Evangelines. I started these just after I finished the first gray pair. They were mostly complete except for the thumbs and the sewing in of the ends.


I've said it before and I'll say it again. . . . "it's difficult getting a good picture of your own hands! And Kristen is at school so I can't use her as a model.

I also finished the Itty Bitty Bunny hat, but I'm waiting to try and model it on Kristen before I show pictures! I think this will be my last pair of 'fingerless mitts' for a while, or until I find anyone that likes to wear them. These will be going in the gift box for just such a time. I really don't know anyone that wears them, so I may start making mittens and matching scarfs next!

Very pretty style. I love fingerless mitts. I have one more pair to this this season. They make great gifts and I love the idea of a matching scarf!

Gorgeous mitts, Denise, and the colour is lovely. A chunky cable scarf to match those would be fab .... although A LOT of cabling!!

Very nice! Great idea to start putting away a few presents for future gifts. And yeah, I know what you mean about trying to photograph mittens while you're modeling them, having just tried it myself. I finally gave up after some pretty awful attempts!
