Colin Morgan in Quirke
I finished my Pieces of Eight Mitts! Looking through some of the diagrams and pictures made it seem a bit daunting at first, but the pattern is very well-written and methodical. I like how the designer warns that anyone who attempts these mitts should be comfortable with the idea of “smoothing out” uneven stitch counts. I know I certainly had to do that a couple times!
I used Patons Kroy Socks in Singin’ the Blues Stripes, which is almost as good as the Starry Night colours I envisioned when I first saw this pattern. I love the alternating blue and grey stripes, and I’m super happy that I was able to start each mitt in about the same spot in the stripe pattern.
Mods: twisted ribbing for the thumbs, slwyif for a clean top edge, added some short rows to the hand to make the fit better for my teeny wrists, flipped the second mitt inside out twice so I could do regular twisted ribbing on both thumbs.
All in all these were quicker than I thought, and just as entertaining as I expected. Thanks for looking!
Sorry Paul but this one was too easy.

Here is my take on the color yellow.
This picture is 7 pictures put together:
2 pictures for me. Since I was the one holding the remote for the camera shutter, I had to pose myself with the remote in each hand so I could use the ones with the open hand.
And 5 pictures for the sheets. I bought this twin flat sheet at a thrift store for $3 specifically for this photograph. It only covered so much space, so I had to position it on one side, flick it in the wind, then repeat on the other side. I then composited those “flicks” together into one big sheet of movement.
A lot of photographs were taken for this, but having my dad as a peanut gallery/watch dog/audience member, I managed to get what I needed and leave within an hour. Not to mention the entire day I waited for this perfect sunset light.
I hope you like this as much as I do.
