...... but have not been posting as I am so busy with a renovation project. More about that later.
But I am still knitting, although not a lot and my latest FO is this .....
.......the Quilted Lattice Mitts. I changed the fingerless version to a full mittens as I wanted them for my trip to Seoul. I used my Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Sock yarn (leftover from my Ravi cardigan) as the main color and the contrasting grey yarn is Socks That Rocks.
I love the pattern as it looks so pretty and it's also a quick knit. When I tried on the mittens, I thought that they may not be warm enough for the winter in Seoul and so decided to add a lining.
I picked up stitches from the inside of the cuff and started knitting in the round, left an opening for the thumb and carried on knitting to the top. I used leftover Knitpicks Gloss Lace yarn for the lining so that it's thinner and will fit nicely inside the mitten.
I am happy with the lining and now I have well padded mittens which I hope will be warm enough. It's now -6C in Seoul and by the time we get there on January 4, I am sure it will be colder!
