Weekend Knitting

Happy weekend Knitters! 

I have been enjoying the wonderful weather, gardening, visiting with friends and knitting.  Weekends don't get much better than this.



This is a new skein of Rainbow Lopi, an alpaca/merino/bamboo blend  that I got from Ziraldo Alpacas when Debbie was the guest demonstrator at our guild meeting on Wed night. I am hoping to cast on tonight for either a pair of mitts or a cowl.  There is only 105 yds so I may have to get creative.    I was wondering about knitting mitts and doing the cuffs in a different yarn.  Any other ideas??

haha...to Brian's helpful suggestion!!
What about if you do the cuff in a solid colour then do either a cable up the centre or a braid all around the circumference in that same solid colour...???

Color work. Either in a hat, or the mitten cuffs. Some slipped stitch pattern might be effective. Oh! What about Newfie mittens?

That looks like it would make fabulous mitts!

No particular idea, I would go and trawl Ravelry but whatever you choose it must do justice to those beautiful colours!

Would mixing this skein with another ration it out more?
