Mmmmore Mmmmmalabrigo & the next generation

I just loved knitting with the Malabrigo Silky Merino from the swap. This is one of the Victoria Fingerless Mittens from Knitting Little Luxuries by Louisa Harding. I accidentally modified the pattern and made the ribbing half as long as written. They won't be durable enough for every day but I plan to wear them when I need some special cheer.

The Malabrigo Junkies over at Ravelry have declared next month as Malabrigo March. I am participating in one of the many KALs, making Herringbone Mittens with Poms, a free pattern from Elliphantom. I am using the green yarn from the swap, along with the beautiful Tuareg blue. Have to wait until March First to cast on.

Kensie was a participant in the most recent round of Yarn Church. She knit her first sock.

And this wrist warmer. Her goal was to master DPNs and I think she accomplished it. It makes me very happy to see another generation learning these skills. I just hope she doesn't fall victim to Second Sock Syndrome.

My sister sends me great links. My favorite one recently is Hello Kitty Hell.

Your mitts are so pretty! I love the edging on both ends, a nice feminine touch. I'm sure wearing them will make you smile and feel happy.

It's so nice to see young people knitting. She did great on that first sock! Way ahead of me in that game...

Hope you're having a good weekend Cate...

Hey I think I recognize the yearn store. Is is next to World of Mirth in Carey Town?

My Mom lives in Richmond and when I go to see her I pop into that store. How cool is that.

Love the mitts!
