At the Knitting Garage
Don't forget: If you want to get started on your own Sophie bag, you can do so in my class on November 22nd or December 3rd.
At HomeI really should not have started on the scarf in a scarf project last week, since now it is yet another project on the back-burner as I switched gears and started on my gift giving projects. However once in a while I remember that silky luxurious feel of the yarn and am looking forward to pick it up again in another six weeks or so :)

The pattern is free on ravelry. You can click on the link above to get to the pattern.
These mitts are a quick knit.with just enough interest to make the mittens stand out. They should be the perfect gift.
I am knitting these on one circular needle using the magic loop method.
These are a few changes I made:
- I am making them shorter and only knitted another nine knit rows after the lace pattern before starting the thumb gussets.
- I worked the increases for the thumb gussets as M1R and M1L for a neater look. Here is a good video by Knit Purl Hunter to see the difference: M1L, M1R
- I am following the advice of some fellow ravellers and am knitting the thumb in the medium size.
