Knitting update

So, here is the progress on the Anemoi mitten. I am about ready to start the decreases to begin shaping the mitten tip. I should have this mitten finished soon - if I don't get sidetracked by other projects on the needles (see below.)

As always - my apologies for the poor photos. It was surprisingly difficult to take picture of my hand.

Slipper (pre-felting). This is Cascade 220 (in an unknown shade of green and purple) knit using the previously mentioned Fibertrends pattern. These slippers really are quite enormous pre-felting (iPod for scale.) These are a thank-you gift for the doctor I worked with during my family practice rotation. The mate needs a cuff and the 2nd sole - they will get felted and finished this weekend!

Grandma Lorrel's scarf - knit with Debbie Bliss alpaca silk in black together with a black eyelash yarn on size 19 needles. The Debbie Bliss alpaca is wonderful to work with, and I imaginne that it will make a very soft, warm scarf. Grandma - I will hopefully have this to you before the end of the winter!

Do I see a red down jacket in that picture of the mittens? Someone needs to turn up the heat in that place.
