A Long Day

I got home this evening and started work on a pair of mittens for a friend’s new (well, 14 month-old) baby.

A long day must have taken its toll.. because I’ve only just realised that I’ve missed out the thumb. Oh dear, mitten fail. Maybe I’ll try again tomorrow.

The pattern I tried (and failed) to use is one from Leslie Anne Price’s Kids Knits, unfortunately now out of print. I highly recommend it.

It’s finished!

I’m so glad to finally finish this jumper.

With it I’ll be rid of a few knitting demons which had accumulated as I struggled to remember what size needles I’d done the first sleeve on, find my cable needle and maintain any level of motivation over the past *ahem* two years.

In the future I’ll try to take some photos of the process of making projects.
