Cast On Mania continues!

Only one matching lopi mitten done. But you get it. One days work. Love how the pattern became fishes. They are "loosely" based on the Lopi cardi-pattern. Do you know how I create patterns? I glance - and then I try to remember... And I really do not remember exactly - and - here a very happy accident happend. I love how patterns emerge like this. But I hope I do not fall victim for the "second mitt" - syndrome. It has happened before. And today - I started with a "jacket" in Welsh-compay Colinette yarn - Point Five - and of course I named this jacket "Punkt fem". The colour is Coppar beach- I wish I had some more of it - it will be snug and probably half sleeves. The problem is that I have no idea what to knit for tomorrow. But tomorrow is Friday. Then I can stay up a bit later.

Cast On Mania February 2011 - FO Lopi mössa

Ok - Here we go again! Crazy - I mean REALLY nuts! I will continue with the Cast On Mania in entire February... (those enabling friends in Ravelry). The first Item was quickly casted on: A Lopi mössa! Amazingly enough it could be casted on, knitted and finished in only 2 hours and 30 minutes.. and some time for making the tassel and darning in the yarn-ends. I am very happy with it. Warm and snuggly! But now it is late - and I am ready for bed!
