The thrummed mittens for Trisha are finished. Overall I am happy with the results.
I will admit that are not exactly the same size. The left mitten (the one knit second) is slightly smaller than the right mitten. I think my knitting was a bit tighter. There was a month in between them. I think my knitting on the first mitten was looser because I was suffering from a sore thumb at the time. It may have affected how I carried the yarn on my left hand since I knit Continental. Another possible theory is that I paid more attention to drawing the yarn tighter around the thrums on the second mitt. I think the morale is to knit them together if I do any more thrummed mittens.
The Custom Fit cardi is a step closer to being done. I finished both sleeves and blocked them. It is now ready for seaming. It has been a while since I've seamed anything, so I am feeling a bit intimidated right now.
I am very pleased with how drapey the fabric has turned out. It will be a great sweater for layering over a blouse or top. Things are looking good for having this done by Christmas.
The Custom Fit cardi is being knit out of Silky Wool. I bought 20 skeins of the red at Stitches South last year. This cardi is going to use about 8 of them. Yesterday while patronizing my LYS for Small Business Saturday I picked up two more skeins of Silky Wool in another colorway. It says Pale Jade, but it looks more gray to me than green. I think I'll make a loose-fitting pullover with the remaining red and add a few stripes with the pale jade. I'll have to find a suitable pattern; maybe something I could whip up on my knitting machine.
