A finished object! From … searches Ravelry … AUGUST?!?! Well, at least it’s August 2011!
In-out-in-out, you shake it all about!
Mojo Mitts in the remnants of the Zauberball I used for my Serpentine Socks (with a little help from another yarn for the thumbs).
And another FO, this time from January of this year. Positively on time.
Evenstar Mitts designed by audm and made in King Cole Anti-tickle Merino.

And finally, a work in progress!
I'm a hooker!
Clue 1 complete and Clue 2 on first glove covered up to prevent spoilers.
These are the Mystery Crochet Fingerless Gloves being done as part of the March CAL on the Fingerless Gloves Fanatics group on Ravelry. I’ve found my people …
Personal stuff: I’ve been to see my GP and she’s put me back on a low dose of my previous happy pills to try and sort the withdrawal symptoms out. So far, I’m like Tigger in comparison to my Eyore of last week.
One day at a time …
A black, long-line waistcoat in a bulky wool yarn:
A completed back and front, plus a front-in-progress leading to the unravelling jumper
Or a sock-weight wool shawl:
Summer Mystery Shawl: Behind as always!
Or stranded colourwork fingerless mitts:
You can see the thumb gusset emerging as pin-stripes!
I may have been watching too much snowboard and ski cross. (A knuckle is a small hummock of a jump that can catch you unaware and leave you floundering with little speed for the next bit of the course).
Given that we are now heading downhill into the final straight of the Winter Olympics, one would assume that I’d be gathering speed (see what I did there?) with my Ravelympics projects. One would assume incorrectly!
I have made incredible progress on my crochet top (Cupcake from Stitch ‘n’ Bitch Crochet)
And it looks real and everything
and I’ve also managed to rip back, wash and re-skein the yarn from my Modular Tank top (a.k.a. The Albatross)
Look how pretty!
My plan for this yarn is to quickly turn it into a waistcoat that I will actually be able to wear this year!
I’ve done absolutely nothing on anything else. It’s all my mum’s fault for tearing/straining the muscles in her left shoulder, necessitating my assistance in a lot of stuff. Caring time is inversely related to crafting time!
Oh, tell a lie! I did manage to make myself a pair of Dashing fingerless mittens!
I messed up the second cable cross (I went too early) but I decided I quite liked the faux bois look I ended up with and so left it!
To conclude – I’ve actually done quite a lot and I should stop underestimating my ability to craft in a crisis.
Hurrah! I have made a weather-appropriate item of knitwear at the right time of year!
I love the colours in the scarf. I’m not a big fan of grey and green, but I think they are more than outweighed by the orange and brown.
The yarn was a sale-item impulse buy but I really think it was worth it.
