Holiday Crafting

As you know, I did not have any holiday knitting deadlines. Yay! But I did craft through the holidays (and I'm still at it). Here's what I have to show for it:
Project #1:
One Anemoi mitten. Ever since Lisa discovered this pattern (by Eunny), I've been as smitten as she is. Smitten by a mitten! I scrounged around in the stash, and found this Habu cashmere that I got on sale a few months ago. These colors (bright-ass pink and eggplant) are discontinued, so I snapped them up. I had no idea what to make with them when I bought them! See, I just had to wait for the perfect pattern to pop up. By the way, I was surprised at how rough this cashmere was, but that was until I washed it... Oh, it is so soft! Also, in order to prevent second mitten syndrome, I've come up with a slight variation for the left mitt. You'll see.


Project #2: The Weekender Bag!
Marie inspired me, and since Brooklyn General now sells *all* of the many parts needed (thanks to Kaitlyn!), I finally tackled this project. And it gave me an excuse to buy that adorable green apple corduroy fabric... Not done yet (and, man, I am so not a good seamstress!), so this is just a little peek. Now, let's hope that all the parts actually line up. Oh, and I used up one entire spool of thread, so I have to go back to Brooklyn General.
