New and Christmas Knits

 Trying to use up my stash, this time a blue variegated coned yarn, I am nearing the end of this adapted cardigan.  2 ply knitting on 3.25mm needles, hasn't been a quick knit!
 This is the back of a tunic (shown sideways) in mohair which is now nearly finished, I do like using mohair for a light sweater.  Great when you need a little extra warmth.
My Mum asked for some colourwork mittens for Christmas, I will be returning to this project in my next post.  It is done in twined knitting and here you can see the bottom edge of the mitt, with a herringbone braid which shows up rather beautifully here.  More on this at a later date...
