The Glass as Half Full

Good news all, I’ve finished my Fiddlehead mittens. And as luck would have it, we got a fresh blanket of snow here in the city. While everyone (including me) is ready for the end of winter, I’m really quite please that I’ll have at least one day to show them off.

That’s the luxuriously soft lining that really make these mittens extra cosy

With that project out of the way, it’s time to get something else on my needles. Don’t despair, I’ve already got a few things lined up. Pinked Socks by Judy Alexander. I’ve picked out the colours in Classic Elite Alpaca Socks, Terracotta and Ash. I’m just waiting on the ash colour, so they are on hold for the moment.

I’ve also been eyeing Featherweight Cardigan. I saw a sample of this pattern at the Purple Purl in all its glory, and was instantly taken by it. It’s so light and airy. But, being the responsible (I’m trying to be at least) knitter, I resisted the urge to buy some delicious yarn for the project and headed home. Upon perusing my stash, I do in-fact have a lace-weight yarn that would be just perfect for it. Saldanha Two

That’s Fleece Artist Saldanha. It has just been laying in wait in my yarn trunk; waiting for the perfect project. I think this might be it!

  1. Jessica, these mittens are gorgeous! I love the pattern and your colour choice :) I can’t wait for the day I can produce something like this.

    • Thanks Aimee! They were my first try at colour work. I was pretty pleased. It was pretty daunting at first, but once I got started it wasn’t that bad. I’d say, just go for it!
