Criss Cross Mitts Update Defines the Thumb Gusset

So recently I did another pair of the Criss Cross Mitts and as I knit these I am always trying to improve the pattern. I have now knitted the thumb gusset within the pattern and makes for a much more finished look of the criss cross. Really interesting...Very hard to put this on paper. Have tried but not easy to write down in an easy manner how to do intarsia knitting and creating the thumb gusset in the correct place with the pattern. One day.......

Scrunch Socks again!

These socks are really amazing...I have really surprised myself. Sold another pair today and really love that it is so well received. I wish I was more disciplined to sit down and just write up this pattern. It would really be a good pattern to sell but there are points in it that are difficult to put on paper. As it is now, I have notes and knit the socks based on the little notes and diagrams that I have written up. Maybe one day...but for now have to finish those mitts I am doing and then on to these. Busy.....

Criss Cross Mitts Update

Last week I received a really nice compliment on the criss cross mitts that I sold to a woman in Washington...she liked them so much that I received an order for 2 more pairs. Think this might be a candidate for a pattern. So I am off knitting as fast as I can with sticks and string! Yahoo!
