All Hands On Deck

Three of us have finished one fingerless mitt of the pair we are knitting for cancer survivors of New York Oncology and Hematology.

First up is Karin's. She is using a pattern from Knit Noro: Accessories: 30 Colorful Little Knits
 Carole found a pretty pink yarn after stash diving and turned it into this beautiful cabled mitt.
 I am using a self-striping sock yarn and size 1 needle for a 3 X 1 ribbing. I'm about halfway through the second mitt.
 Maureen is working on the baby sweater and hoping to finish it to get it into this week's donation to The Christ Child Society, Albany Chapter. 
 Here are the items we will be delivering this week.
 Maybe winter will arrive sometime soon so these kids will actually get to wear a sweater or two. We've had a crazy winter and not much snow. It was 42 degrees today!
 I finished my Daybreak Shawl using Karin's hand dyed Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors Sock Yarn.
 The dark teal is "Past Midnight"
 and the light color is "Cloud Dancer".
This pattern was an easy knit but by the time I was almost finished I made the mistake of counting the stitches on my needle. I finally got tired around 500! And there were still more to count. I'm glad I made this with fingering weight yarn but next time I think I'll try it with a heavier weight.
