NaKniMitMo 2013 is Coming Soon!
Just a reminder for those who like to participate ... NaKniMitMo 2013 is fast approaching! I participated at the last minute in 2011, and came up with this mis-matched pair:
There is a Ravelry group for National Knitting Mittens Month, it says "2012" on the badge but the first discussion thread is for 2013. I'm in! Who's with me?
This year, I am determined to challenge myself. I have done colorwork before, but I always avoided the really complicated patterns. Not this time! I have a book, "Mostly Mittens (Ethnic Knitting Designs from Russia)" and I am going to knit something from it. Russian patterns don't seem to be as complicated as Latvian patterns ... in any case, I've never knit anything from this book, and I need to practice my colorwork. As I mentioned last post ... I knit way too tightly in colorwork. For example, this hat ...
Was very snug on my head. (I do have a big head, though) I'm blocking it to see if I can get it looser.
You can also knit gauntlets/wristlets/fingerless-gloves for NaKniMitMo ...
Hope to see you there!
