Twisty Turns, mitts, and Windy City

Talk about an exhausting couple of months, and the best part is that none of this will slow down for quite awhile now. Sarcasm. Well, I've been knitting up a storm the past few weeks, but now I'm at the point where I don't know what to knit. Scratch that, I have a lot I want to knit but since I'm moving in a week (or so?) I am trying to pick a project that is going to take me awhile, until I get all of my knitting stuff back. I was thinking a sweater or a shrug but am somewhat hesitant.

I finished my Twisty Turns finally. I actually had the entire thing accomplished by the end of April, but couldn't bring myself to seam it all together until last week. After seaming, it looks amazing and I am very proud. I know that my mother will love it. Also, I knit the Windy City scarf (from SnB) and matching convertible mittens (my own improv, and my first pair of mittens) for a friend. Enjoys some photos!

Twisty Turns, as modeled by my friend, it's Knit Pick's Andean Silk in color "olive". So soft. So warm. I'm in love.

My own design for convertible mitts (that turned out pretty good!), made from Knit Pick's Shine, in tan, turquiose, and cream.

Well that should be all for now. I might be MIA for a month or two until the move settles, and we find a place to live, but I'll be sure to update when I have some time! Later.
