2 sweaters for the campaign

Here are the two sweaters I delivered to A for A last week.  I went to SF on Friday to help sort and unpack the beautiful sweaters, hats, mittens and socks that everyone is sending.  I always get ideas from all of the other knitters and crocheters out there.

In these sweaters, I used slip stitch patterns.  It's a great way to add your leftovers to your projects.

It's in the mail!

Just packed and mailed this pullover. It is supposed to arrive on Saturday. The pattern is from Paton, called Andrew's Stripes, but I used just a few rows of the peach color. That went faster and avoided all the weaving in of ends. Happy days!

Mittens from Elizabeth's Yarn

Here is a pair of mittens made with the alpaca/wool/nylon yarn that Elizabeth D. supplied, with 3 strands held together.  They're a little bit small on me, but would do.  They're nice and cushiony!  I think I have enough yarn for at least one smaller pair, maybe two.  They should get in the mail tomorrow.
