Some of you might know this already, but I have a tremendously huge stash. Going from next to nothing to miles of meters in only a very few years. I refuse to be ashamed of it. Rather, I’d cuddle up into it and play around for days. And I also refuse to be on yarn diet.
Still, it is one of my daily challenges to knit from my stash.
This weekend, as I got cought up by some virus lurking about in the vicinity, I had the excellent excuse for not doing anyhing else than cuddle up in my sofa and drink hot beverages and KNIT. I am sure the latter helps on recovering.
I have been searching for a quick knit lately ( my current WIP’s are mostly long-carrier-projects ), and when my daughter slipped a knitting – wish through her pre – adolescent lips, I jumped on the occasion. They’re rare enough to cherish, and this one could be fulfilled in one weekend.
So here’s a pair of fingerless mittens, Susie Roger’s reading mitts, a free pattern on Ravelry, knit with the wonderful and soft Arroyo from Malabrigo. The colour is Lavanda, and is a perfect match of the braided cowl I knit her for Christmas.
She’s happy, and so am I.
