Busy Like A Bee

Considering that I was in the midst of finishing up nursing school, I did manage to get a pair of mittens and two scarves completed, just in time for Christmas!

The mittens are knit in Noro Kuryeon, and the pattern is from Annie's Woolens. Had to reknit the right mitten, since they original pair went to school with the oldest, and only one made it home...

I like how the thumbs came out in black and green, which pretty much sums up my gardening abilities - somewhere inbetween the two!

For my parents trip to New Zealand next month I knit them both scarves. My dad's is knit in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky, and the pattern is a double cable one that I picked up at All About Yarn. Looks more complex than it was to knit, and looks so manly!
For my mom, I chose Alpaca with a Twist's Big Baby using a freebie baby cable pattern which doesn't use a cable needle at all! This is the second one I've knit using this pattern, and it came out much better using the chunkier yarn.

Your scarves are just lovely. Love the Noro mittens as well, very snuggly.

New Zealand, huh? They have a lot of sheep there.

I love those Noro mittens - I have a couple of skeins left over from a sweater and I think they might just work By Jove, I think she's got it!

The Noro mittens you've been knitting are gorgeous! I also have leftovers. Great idea!
