January Knitting


Pattern: Basic Cabled Mittens
Designer: Amy O'Dell; Knit from detailed notes supplied by leanney
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash
Color: Black
Needles: Circular - 4.0 mm

I liked Melissa's dusty rose mittens so much that I knit a pair for myself in black.

Pattern: Strokkur
Designer: Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Létt-Lopi
Color: Black Heather - 8513
Needles: Circular - 4.5 mm
This is my second Strokkur pullover. I find black garments very difficult to photo. The black yarn is actually darker than shown in the photo. No end of editing would give me the exact shade. The mittens are also a much darker black.
Designer: Ali Crockett
Yarn: Bernat Handcrafter Cotton Stripes
Colour: 1410
Needles: Circular - 5.0 mm
I really like hand knit cotton dishcloths. They are pretty, can be laundered in hot water, and are very durable.
