Memory Lane

I find myself in an unusual situation this week. Every single project I'm working on is a repeat. Brad got a new pair of heavy socks - the same basic pattern I use for almost all his socks. I've tried others but these are the best fit for his foot and are great for TV knitting. My only complaint is my camera's apparent difficulty with shades of green - these are an emerald heather that I can't seem to get quite right.

Also on the repeat list is an EZ seamless sweater for myself in the same brown heather as the one I made my brother for Xmas. I'm thinking there will be a colorwork yoke on this but haven't ironed out any details yet. Plenty of time to figure that part out...I've only just finished one sleeve and started the body.

And, finally, I'm reknitting my latvian mittens (graph 15 for those wondering) in a larger size. So far they're a perfect fit and I much prefer the cuff minus the navy side bands.

Repeats or not, they all look rockin'! :)

Busy, busy. I like the pattern and colors on the mitten cuff.

I hope the mittens cooperate for you this time around...

Very nice socks - why "fix it" if it isn't broke?

I agree with Samantha. If I knit as beautiful items as you do, I'd repeat them too!

I really love the latvian mitten. I must agree with you that they are better minus the border!
