Evangeline

Evangeline






Evangeline


Pattern: Evangeline


Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Twisted, Raven Series colorway Valkyrie


Started: January 5, 2008


Finished: January 6, 2008


(my first stash knit a mile project)


Notes: Still loving the Twisted yarn, which is good because there is still TONS left! I modified the pattern to make the wrist length version a bit longer by knitting the cable pattern repeat one extra time. Next time (and I loved the pattern, so there will be a next time), I would probably knit the pattern repeat two extra times and have the ribbing be the same length (10 rows instead of 6) for the finger edge as the cuff edge. Quick, easy pattern!


I've been loving cables lately, as you will soon see with Snowboarder's new hat (nope, the cream hat in the last post was a hat I knit for him last year)!


Have a great week!

Gorgeous mitts! Love the colorway too. Aren't cables fun!?

Love those ravens! Is this the same yarn as your new hat? It looks similar.

Zonda said...

Fabulous!! Boy is that a neverending skein of yarn!

Bezzie said...

Mmm...More Raven. Very pretty!

It's so fun to have enough extra yarn to complete whole extra projects! And they look lovely!

Brena said...

I hadn't seen that pattern before, thanks for the introduction! Those mitts are fantastic. And I LOVE your fairy ring!!!!!!!!!

tapmouse said...

They look great! And your posts only make me want to get some Twist in a Raven colorway!!! Like you, I need to appreciate my existing stash because it is incredible. Maybe I need to think outside the box and consider doubling some of my sock yarn up for quicker, small knit projects!

Those look great! Nice job. I like how that color worked up in the pattern.

Are those Rowan's pretty hands and rings?
Very nice Irishgirlie. Could really use a pair up here in Portland. It's getting pretty Chilly! (Just want to help you out in the yardage department!)

So pretty! The colors are fab.

kasiaiscarly said...

the mitts are great, but is it bad i am more focused on your super cute fairy (i think it's a fairy) ring? :)

Turtle said...

Love the colorway and am so with you on the cable run! Seems i am looking to just knit cables now that i finally talked myself into knitting them.

Those Ravens makes the mitt pattern so much more appealing! I know that sooner or later I'll be getting some Ravens in Twisted 'cause I was surprising good and didn't buy anything from the Wollmeise update.
