Andrea Mitts (FO Friday)

To see more FOs, visit Tami's Amis.

Pattern:  Andrea Mitts
Needles:  Size 4 DPN
Yarn:  Random fingering weight from my stash

I have completed my test knit of the Andrea Mitts by Perfectioknits.
 The pattern is very clear and easy to read and is full of great details.
 Twisted rib, lace and bobble design and a picot bind off.  Overall a very fun pattern.
I can't wait to make another pair :)

WIP Wednesday: Groovin' all Summer Long

To see more WIPs, visit Tami's Amis.

Well, summer break has started but not a lot of crafting, or blogging, has been happening because of this guy.
I woke up one morning with a very swollen finger.  Having gone through a serious finger infection and surgery about three years ago, I immediately started to panic.  After visiting a bunch of doctors, ranging from urgent care to hand surgeon, the best guess is that it was an arthritis flare-up.  I am finally feeling ready to get back into my crafting and blogging.
This is how far I had gotten on the Groovyghan before the finger incident.  I plan to dig in today and continue making progress.  It's beginning to feel like it will take all summer to complete this guy, especially since I think I want to add two more panels than the pattern calls for :)
