Autumn cold encourages handling wooly items. Current Work In Progress:
Rust Orange Mittens for coooooold mornings on the BART platform.
My version of commuter mittens - I can already see a need to modify the pattern! the poofy area next to the ribbed cuff has got to go! But the instructions told me to increase stitches! Another good reason never to believe what you read!
Here's the original pattern from a lovely knitting magazine. I declined to use stripes in an attempt to look less clownish as I travel about town. This may be negated by the use of bright rust orange yarn!
Sewing: Recycled wool patchwork blanket. Picture to come...
