I’ve worked fairly hard on the orange mittens for my daughter. I got the yarn on Christmas vacation. Found out that Cascade has a wool that matches Artic Cat orange really well. So of course my daughter needed mittens to go with her new snowmobile coat.
First, I had to finish the scarf that was to match her hat and mittens I had given her at Thanksgiving to keep her warm on campus. Of course a few pairs of socks got on the needles and now the orange mittens are almost done.
Soon I should also have pictures of the old style felted liners I am knitting for my husband. Unfortunately that is a pattern that came from the same store I got the Artic Cat Orange (the Tawas Bay Yarn Store) and was free with yarn purchase. I believe it was designed for this store. I expect it will be a big favorite around here for guys, but one that I won’t be able to share because it seems bold to ask for permission.
So I have something almost finished, and I have that new cream yarn. It is wonderful but not for what I intended it for. It is so soft and wonderful. As I remember it is Debbie Bliss and made of alpaca and silk. I was going to make mittens with it, but I don’t think they will turn out. So, I will be thinking of a new project.
Till then I have a pair of felted baby high tops, a derby and a couple other items calling my name. Guess it will continue, one step at a time.
