What do I have here? Something very tweedy for Autumn! A set of my Tartan & Tweed Tam & Mitts for an Autumn birthday gift, and a pretty nice ensemble of Autumney finds of local acorns and fir cones.
I have used a lovely yarn of alpaca-wool blend called Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light, which I really love, and adorned not with a pompom or toorie, or beret loop ~~ but a Dorset Button.
That is the news from my neck o’ the woods, and I’m roaring along rather productively on another mitt design, soon to be done & dusted with it. I hope you are all having a wonderful Autumn and enjoying the turning of leaves and things to gold & rust, as I am. Its a slow turning in Northern California, but it is beginning!
Spring has spring in winter’s second month. From hard wood emerges the most delicate of things!
And the meadows are bursting with wild mustard flowers…
Lately even though it’s spring-like here I am in winter mind.
There has emerged a mitten version of Tartan & Tweed Mitts…
This means that there will be still another update made to the pattern while I’m in the throes of pattern redesign. I just never can tell if there is still more to come. Which there was.
Mittens & Fingerless Mitts to be photographed on my lovely nieces this coming weekend, so watch this space !
