Up Close and Personal With Knitting

This is another project that I have been working on, since I just haven’t been “feeling” the convertible mittens lately.  Does that ever happen to you?  I know that I have just a little bit more to go, but I can’t bring myself to pick up the needles and yarn and finish it right now for some reason.  So, I started on this.

I’m not going to give out a lot of details about what it is, but I will tell you what I love about it.  I love the beads incorporated into the knit fabric, how pretty is that?  I also love the way the increases and decreases on the pattern form what looks like a rib, but without having any purl stitches.  Also, notice how the knit stitches are at gigantic angles to each other, and how the part the pops out is going in a diagonal.

I really do love this pattern, and I can’t wait to see the final product – which probably won’t appear here until after Christmas!

    That’s rather beautiful, and way more fun than a convertible mitten. My convertible mittens have been languishing for three years in a box; all done but the second top. I don’t love them any more…you’ll know it’s a true break-up when I take the needles out!

    The close up is very pretty, I can’t wait to see the finished product!
