So far, the mitten is singular, though I hope to make it mittens by the end of the weekend. The pattern is Snapdragon flip-tops by Ysolda Teague. (Yarn is Cascade220 Heathers) I have been playing around with the idea of patterning the cuff of mittens instead of the hand for awhile now. Then, of course, I looked through my patterns and realized these were very similar to the image in my brain with the bonus of a new way to do flip-tops! I do enjoy my mittens.
The mug I snagged at Target last night. There were only two orange ones left, and adopting them seemed the proper thing to do.
It’s finally winter here. So at 7am, it is dark and cold and my photograph is horribly lit. Thankfully, the brilliance of orange seems to be able to withstand the test of dim artificial light and pre-coffee photography.
