There wasn't a lot of studio time for me today, but I did enjoy myself. Our weather has been incredibly beautiful lately, so afternoons in the studio are a pure delight. This is a section of the silk crepe de chine that I grits resisted today. I'm not sure if I love grits or potato dextrin more as resists - they both achieve different but equally exciting results.
I've been enjoying learning stranded knitting and have almost completed my first mitten! YAYY!!
This is the Squirrelly Swedish Mitten designed by Ellie Stubenrauch (Elliphantom). I know there are a few mistakes in this first one, but I still have the second one to knit, so I'm hoping to do a bit better.
Here's the flip side, sans thumb - ah, well, it does have my thumb but not the knitted thumb, just yet! That will come in time. Now that Spring is on its way, I don't feel the need to hurry with these mittens....they should be finished by next Winter!
