Today, a little glimpse into the brain of Elli.
Question: How long will I knit before I accept that the colors I picked out just don't have enough contrast?
nope. 1.9 mittens.
On the bright side, these knit up ridiculously quickly. It's like I sneezed and a couple of mitten appeared. Also, I really really really love this Araucania Azapa. It's soft like a baby's butt and has a lovely sheen. Not surprising as it's merino/silk/alpaca...yum, yum! So yum, in fact, that I ordered another skein:
Hello there. I am here to save the day.**
I see more contrast in my future.
*pattern = Sprig Mittens. Something I charted up for fun...probably will be available eventually if there's any interest.
**Araucania Azapa, colors Sea Green (808), Tan (802), and Cadet (811).
