Knitting Weekend

My car was down for the count all weekend (Friday, too), so the three of us were stuck at home for three days. It was also cold and rainy, which was perfect knitting weather.

The mittens above are called Window Pane Mittens. I got the pattern from Knitting Pattern Central, but it did contain a few mistakes, which I had to sort out. I'll just rewrite it so I can use it again, because I like the results. These were made with Cascade 220.

These, of course, are Noro Kureyon, and this is color #182. I found an E-Bay seller who was selling three skeins for only $12.50, and I couldn't resist. This is just a basic mitten-in-the-round pattern.

This is another little babysweater using this pattern . For this one, I used Berroco Comfort DK. It's really, really soft!!

And only $500 later, my car is now in a drive-able condition!

Ouch! It always hurts to get the bill. Love the mittens and sweater set! Great buy on the Kureyon.
