Finished Object: Cynthia's Mittens

I finished up Cynthia's mittens on the 10th. They were a super fast knit, despite the fact that it took me a few days to finish up. I ended up knitting, ripping and re-knitting the second mitten, as apparently I decided to make it child sized? Not entirely sure how that one happened.

Pattern: Flip Tops
Yarn: Berocco Campus in College Try
Needle: US 9 - 5.5mm

And the entire set for Cynthia. It should go into the mail this afternoon.

Moving right on to Meredith's commission. The first piece is the Eternity Scarf:

I'm making it from the called for yarn, Rowan Lima (it's really gorgeous yarn, I think I mentioned that before).

I tried to cast on for it yesterday, but instead of setting up my addi needles with two size nine needles, I put on one size nine and one size 10. Oops. I was a little distracted about the tooth problems and the dentist. All is well.

Oh, and in terms of my resolutions, I'm keeping up with the meditation fairly well, as I hit four of seven days last week, and am aiming for five days this week. I got one day of yoga in last week and I'll get another in this week. I'm also trying to take better care of myself, which I've been neglecting to do for a while.


  1. Those mittens look so warm and cozy! Now I'm off to check out that scarf on rav :)

  2. Lucky, lucky Cynthia, the set is gorgeous!
    Good to hear that all is well, you must look after yourself better Virginia! That scarf is really beautiful, and I love the color... Must check out that yarn...

  3. I completely understand distracted knitting; I've given up on knitting socks two-at-a-time for the same reason; my attention span is just too short, and I don't even have dental issues to blame :-(

    The set is very comfy-looking tho :-)

  4. The Eternity Scarf will be gorgeous in the Rowan Lima. It is a gorgeous yarn!!

  5. Adorable mittens! Can't wait to see the scarf. It's a beautiful pattern. And you are so productive.

    Sounds like you are off to a good start with your resolutions. Keep at it!

    And check my blog when you have a moment--you are the winner!

  6. Great finished items. They look warm!

  7. The mittens are awesome. Hard to believe that they're your first pair!
