the north wind doth blow

Its certainly a lot chillier here lately - definitely time to get out the winter woollies and base layers. Just the time of year to sit beside the fire and do a wee bit of knitting, so I'm on to my second ball of yarn bought at the Glen Gallery - a beautiful pink / grey Araucania Ranco Multi.

I'm knitting yet another pair of fingerless mitts for myself, using a pattern by Catherine Ryan - Fingerless Piano and Mini Mitts which can be found on her Hither and Yarn blog. I've made much use of this pattern ...one Christmas everyone got a pair, each having a different description such as gaming gloves, computing mitts etc. I like using 4ply wool for the project as the mitts are light enough to use going shopping or even inside. I'm hoping to use whats left of the skein to make a scarflette - so I'm on the lookout for a nice pattern.


  1. Lovely choice of colours...
    Can you please post a link to the blog with the pattern?
    Nice to make something for yourself once in a while isn't it!

  2. Thank you for the link...very nice and practical.

  3. Beautiful colours Ali, well done for knitting for yourself - I must do it sometime. Hope you are well. Lynne xx


Id love to hear what you think about my blog, knits etc.
