Loopy Academy, Knitting Version, Cables

I’ve finished my Cables project for Loopy Academy, Knitting.  This means I’ve finished another semester of Loopy Academy Knitting!  These were meant to be socks, but part of the way through, I pulled one onto my arm to see what the cable pattern was looking like, and decided to make them mitts instead!  I guess I’m lucky I have narrow feet and the ribbing in this pattern can compress to arm and hand sizes.

They are knit in Malabrigo Sock in Natural.  The pattern is Paraphernalia with a thumb gusset added that I basically figured out as I went (and kept notes for the second one).  If I had thought it through, I could have used the thumb gusset from one of my mitt patterns, but my decision to turn socks into mitts was pretty spur of the moment.

I’ve still got two more projects to make for Loopy Academy, Sewing so I need to get moving on those.  I’m hoping to get started on my Seasonal Wallhanging later today.

I love all your projects, although I don't quite see the need for the Loopy Academy. I have so many of my own projects planned and a stash of yarn and fabric that I would like to use up. It seems the Loopy Academy is just a great marketing tool on their part. There must be some aspect of it that I am missing that keeps you involved.
