morning mittens...trois

Oooh baby I love your way, everyday!
This is my third time knitting this pattern, and I still love it.
It is fast, accurate and yields a great result.
I am using a hand-dyed wool alpaca blend that I bought on Salt Spring Island.  I managed to snag the ball directly from the artist on his own farm!  I love it because it is a one of a kind.

You really should try it if your looking for a quick and satisfying knit.  The other two pairs were knit in Berroco Jasper, which worked really well too!

Pattern:  Maine Morning Mittens

is it me?

 Trying to decide if the new hat makes me young, approachable or......
Just a little too elementary...hmmm!  The jury is out on this one!
Too bad you can't see the cute pom-pom perched on top
because it is what really had me questioning the new purchase.
