The totoro mittens are all knitted up and posted off to H. I'm deciding what to make next. I've been looking at patterns over at Quince & co...there are quite a few contenders at the moment.
Meanwhile I bought a cute little hooded red jacket in a sale on Saturday and peeping out in a bargain basket in the same lovely shop was a reduced ball of Debbie Bliss alpaca and silk wool...just one. I picked it up, it was so soft and such a gorgeous colour of cherry red that I couldn't resist. So I'm making a randomly striped scarf with odds and ends to go with the jacket. I've tried to show you my jacket but the mirror's too low...so I was all hunched up.
I stole downstairs on freezing Sunday morning tucked up in a rug on the sofa and started knitting it. Hopefully I'll soon finish it and I can show it to you next week...I'll get someone else to take a picture! Oh and tell you about my visit to Unravel this weekend.
I've started reading The Help By Kathryn Stockett...more compulsive reading but I'll tell you more about it next time.
As usual I'm joining blogger friends for Yarn Along...
...are you coming too?
