Long Weekend

I had a three day week last week which was very nice! I was on leave on Thursday and Friday so had a long weekend. Met up for Stitch & Bitch on Thursday evening which went great and then saw my friends Hannah and Karen on the Friday. We were due to go to Bristol on Sunday and do some shopping and meet up with Heather and Andrew but I didn’t feel very well so we’ve postponed that trip for a couple of weeks.

I didn’t do a great deal else over the weekend aside from watching tv and DVDs but I did get  the Smittens finished.



I don’t know whether to block them or not . Since I’ll be wearing them on my hands I’m not sure if there’s much of a point.

I also started, and have almost finished, a fingerless glove from a ball of Soft and Shiny Mohair/Wool


I just need to complete finishing on this one and have cast on for it’s mate.

Something else happened over the weekend. I had a surprise from my Secret Pal!


Three balls of Plassard Papyrus in shade 11 which came to me via a certain rabbit!

I haven’t decided what I’m going to make from it yet. I’m thinking that it would suit some sort of wrap. Looks like it would have a good drape to it.

    Your smittens look fab,as does your fingerless glove.
    I never block gloves or socks.Just wash then pat out gently & leave to dry.

  2. I LOVE THE SMITTENS!! we’re they difficult at all? I have the new SNBN and theres a pattern in there for them…is this the one you used? I also i scored a copy of the UK Knitters ( or is it knitting….i cant remember..) magazine and absoultely love it, your mags are a million times better than ours! xo, brooke

    Landed on your blog doing a search for a knitting pattern for “Smittens”. Was wondering where you found the pattern.

    Came across your site while looking for a pattern for mitts with a flap. Your pink ones are exactly what I was looking for. I believe you called them smittens. Can you tell me where I can find the pattern for them, I have been looking on the web with no luck. Lots with the partial fingers but not what I am wanting. Would you share your pattern? Hopeing to hear back from you or anyone else that has this pattern. Bye for now.
