I complained last week about how everything I was working on was pink or purple, and realized that the exact opposite of said colors was yellow-green. As luck would have it, I had purchased a skein of very yellow-green yarn only a few weeks ago, and figured it was a great time make use of its much-desired colorway.
The original intention was to make Penguin a new hat, but the girl owns numerous hats AND she is bumping up into number of Bluebird’s outgrown hats this year as well. Penguin doesn’t need another hat. I asked her what she did want and she suggested mittens.
I’m not much of a mitten knitter.
However, the yarn was a bulky-weight (Lamb’s Pride Bulky–85% Wool, 15% Mohair), and a quick pattern search pulled up Susan B. Anderson’s Outsider Mittens, which looked pretty cute (and free!).
Once I cast on, I was a woman possessed. I finished the pair in less than twenty-four hours, and I’d really like to some more of these quick little cuties.
Oh. That would be yellow…and…green.
