29 Nov

MERCIGRANNY_Goldenhat_finishedWith a skein of Malabrigo Yarn Sock I knitted a pair of mittens, a matching hat and I have enough left to knit a hadband. For this set I wanted to be minimalistic and knitted everything in stockinette stitch.

It’s so quick to knit you can be ready to gift it for the holidays and for a very reasonable price!

The lace beret I was knitting last February was finished but I did not took the time to share some photos of it. I did not had any spare yarn and half a ball was too small to complete an adult size beret. This will be the perfect gift for a young miss!

MERCIGRANNY_MilkDrop_Too-large

Milkdrop has been on hold for quite some time now since I focused on the end of the year gifts. I finally finished the body of the sweater, but big surprise: it’s too large. I checked my gauge and it is accurate, I followed the pattern as well, maybe the yarn weight is acting…
