Mom’s Birthday Knits

My mom’s birthday is coming up on Dec 1, as it is every year of course.  This year I’ve been knitting up a storm for her.  I decided to use Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Natural as she requested something in a cream or neutral colour.  Her winter jacket is a dark brown with purplish highlights to it in some light.  I’ve finished 2 items and am over half done the third.


The first item is a keyhole cabled scarf.  It was a very quick knit and used up very little yarn.



Next was Jared Flood’s Turn a Square toque with malabrigo worsted and a brown Noro Silk Garden striped together.


These are what have taken the longest.  I’m working on Ysolda’s Snapdragon Flip-Top Mitts.  They’re very cabled and really pretty, but can take awhile to do.  I’m done one mitten and have 8 rows left on the 40 row chart before doing the flip top, the top of the mitt and the thumb.  I’m going to post a picture of the mitts later and hopefully get a picture of my mom wearing it all in December.
