more knitting

Nina has been asking for gloves for a while now but I haven't been able to find any small enough for her, or a pattern for tiny gloves. So I decided to knit her some mittens. I bought a pattern and borrowed some needles (thanks, Lucy!). They are addi needles; everyone raves about addis, but I don't see what the fuss is all about. They were...ehh, I didn't have a problem with them but I don't love them. I don't really like knitting on such tiny (size 2) needles, but I think they came out well and Nina likes them. I used sock yarn I got on sale at the yarn shop.

And this is an old project I just finished...for the second time. The first time I didn't join the two yarns well enough and by the time I noticed it had come apart it was too late, too much of it had unravelled to salvage. So I ripped out the whole thing and knitted it up again. It was originally wider and shorter, but by the time I had gotten around to casting it on after ripping it out I had forgotten how many stitches. It's quite nice, pretty, and shiny, I think.
