Druid Mittens

I participated in Ravelry's Ravelympics. The point of Ravelympics was to choose something to knit that would challenge the knitter. With that in mind, I decided on these mittens...for me! These are truly my most favorite knit. The detail in these mittens are so amazing! I was actually a little nervous knitting them - I just wasn't sure I could do the pattern justice (that still up to one's own interpretation). Someone once said to me (after showing her something I had knit), "Oh, Amy, you are so prolific!" Hmph! :-) Anyway, my response was, "It's not original, I did use a pattern." So as amazing as I think that these mittens turned out, I am exponentially more amazed that one could design such a pattern. So, without further ado, I proudly present my Ravelympics entry, Druid Mittens (Green Autumn) by Jared Flood (brooklyntweed).

Accomplished?

The Anisette Shawl is done! Having finished this shawl, I have come to realize that I have never before experienced such a sense of accomplishment as a project came off the needles. It was really neat to see it all come together as I was blocking it.

And I whipped up two Barn Bags for belated birthday gifts for twin girls. After finishing the bags I thought they needed a little something to spruce it up (they were so plain). So I thought, first things first, I'll line 'em. While I was looking for fabric I found the little flowers. The bags turned out cute.


Lastly, a picture of my WIP - Aurora Bag. I'm almost done with the second side.
