As I sit and knit work-type stuff I daydream, and lately the daydreams have been about mittens. Two styles- pointy-topped and fingerless, with pulse warmers from the leftovers thrown in, to boot. There will be tassels and tiny needles, candy stripes and troll buttons.
My color cards for all these yarns have been taunting me for ages, so it was a thrill to finally print my order form and mail it off with a check (how old-fashioned!). This yarn is GORGEOUS. It’s exactly what I hoped it would be- strong, glossy, ever so slightly imperfect. This is going to be a big pleasure.
While you’re at Nordic Fiber Arts looking at yarn, why not take a peek at these books. Beware, they’re out of stock and won’t be in for a few weeks. I haven’t received mine, so can’t comment on the contents, but they certainly look like answered prayers to me!
Now, to distill all that into patterns!
