Several Finished Objects

Finally my camera has been repaired and I can report on several finished objects.  First up is Truck Mittens for Niepa.  I used some leftover Baby Cashmerino yarn.  The pattern is Vroom-vroom mittens available on Ravelry.

Next are mittens for Ella, the daughter of one of my yoga teachers.  They are Baby Cashmerino also, and I used my basic mitten pattern, available here.

The Bohus Stickening Cuffs are from a class I took at Stitches Midwest.  The technique involves a very fine yarn with colorwork.  Unlike fair isle, there is purling.  Also, the floats can be considerably longer than with fair isle work.  The result is pretty, but I don't have the patience to do this on a larger project.  I received the yarn and pattern in a kit during the class.

My last project is Petrie, done in a linen yarn.  I'm very pleased with how this turned out.  Unfortunately it will be too cold to wear a sleeveless linen top in Michigan until about next June.
