Lace Mitts

Knitting goodness. The feel of my fine merino hand spun yarn has been wonderful. It is a so so soft feeling as I work the lace pattern. Mittens were the first "garments" I learned to knit but this is the first pair with a lacy cuff. The pattern was in graph form and in over 50yrs of knitting it's a first.

My mitts have been steamed and will be finished when dry. The knitting was done both at the same time with 2 different balls of yarn . The random results from the cinnamon roll spinning..

The colors of autumn/winter in Australia
Looking forward to a few days in down town Sydney.  DH is working and I will have days times to wander,checkout museums and maybe even some shopping. You never know 

Enjoy whatever you happen to do over the next few days .  Terry

Your mittens look lovely, such beautiful cinnamon scroll colours and beautiful lacy edging. Enjoy your time in Sydney, I hope you see lots of wonderful exhibitions. It's a good time for shopping too!

Very cosy looking mitts! I haven't tried knitting from a graph yet. Must give it a go - I like challenges!

Hope you have a lovely time in Sydney.

Love that autumn yarns you have spun. You make me itchy to spin too. Have a lovely time in Down-town Sydney. I still remembered when we were there together a couple years ago - hugs Nat
