Archive for the ‘free patterns’ Category

I’ve been on a knitting roll that is about to come to an abrupt end. The projects seemed to roll off my needles easily but now I am embarking on masochistic knitting projects and they won’t be flying off my needles so effortlessly.

The last of the knitting roll projects is finished.

These are a free pattern from Fringe Association called Log Cabin Mitts. They were fun to knit. The yarn is Shelter from Brooklyn Tweed in the colorways Iceberg, Tartan and Almanac. The second picture shows the front and palm of the mitt. They are sturdy and warm. The best knitting attribute is that the thumb gusset is a pleasure to work. No fiddly gusset here. I am studying the construction of the thumb gusset to see if I can adapt it to other mitts I might make in the future.

This morning I had a surprise visitor waiting for me on the back patio.

barred owl

It’s a Barred Owl. Although I have heard owls I have never seen one in the wild. This is my first. I was so happy. I snapped him with my phone camera, but wished I had my Canon camera to do him more justice. He’s a kind of cool persona. He let me come out and talk with him and he didn’t fly away or get upset. I’d love to see him again.
