FO Friday: Knitting as Therapy

It’s friday again! I hope you are all well and happy. Life is a little complicated around here. However with knitting and reading, the world continues to turn, and the concerns of today will pass and leave lovely Finished Objects in there wake.

I continue to plug away on my “Abigail Vest

Arc mittens

Arc Mittens

by Peggy O’Grady

published in Interweave Knits Accessories 2011

Review:  Once I figured out what they where aiming for it was fairly simple to knit these. However I would not recommend them for fit, with all the shaping at the back of your hand they don’t really fit properly. I would also use M1R & M1L rather than RL1, LL1 shaping they recommend. Looks almost the same, less gathered, lays flatter.

Books: If you have read this

Then I highly recommend this!

Mr Darcy takes a Wife by Linda Berdoll

I have read several sequels to Pride and Prejudice, I think this is my favourite.

    Cozy mitts! Love them. I just for the A&E P&P DVD set last week. Immediately watched the entire thing in one night! Must watch it again this weekend!!!

    Interesting thumb gusset construction, but I’ll take your word for it and not bother. With mitts and gloves it’s all about the fit for me!

    Sorry about the mittens. I hate when you put so much work into something and then it just is on the edge of not wearable.
