Oooooh, love that mitten book. I have also just recently picked up a copy and then spent the better part of 4 or 5 hours trying to decide which mitten and then (as if that weren't hard enough) deciding which skeins of sock yarn to sacrifice, er, "re-purpose" for the project. I'm not saying that I have too much sock yarn, mind you, but...yeah, OK, maybe I have too much sock yarn. Horray for new challenges! Hooray for mittens!


I'm stuck by all of the color combination possibilities in that last picture - they are lovely! (I plan on at least a pair (or two?) of mittens using yarn I have but that leaves me to find just the right pattern...) As for stretching, I need to work on that as well. I hadn't considered a new tea as a way to kick off my "go beyond my limits" stint but I like the idea and may see what treasure I can find in the tea isle...


Calming Tea at night and Guarana Chai in the morning ... great teas ... beautiful socks.

I haven't knit the NE sock as yet. It's on my list of musts from that book...but now there is the NEW book. Never enough time, eh? Socks, mittens, gloves...it sounds more and more like winter in Blogland.


I like that New England sock, too. I've got that book but hadn't realized that the pattern for that one came from the Shaker Village. I visited there years ago and enjoyed it very much. The tea sounds yum-my.


Oh you've caught me. Hook line and sinker. I've been wanting to get Nancy Bush's new book (Vintage Socks), thinking if I have get that one I'll be satisfied. Oh no. Not possible. Now I KNOW I really must have KOTR as well. I love that New England sock pattern!! Gotta have both books now. Thanks a LOT Kim! I know my husband will thank you for this one. heh


I'm impressed with your industry and initiative. Visual learning is much easier for many (me!). It's always nice to expand your repertoire.

I love that mitten book as much as her "Hats On!" book - just picked up some NatureSpun sport for one or the other. Getting ready for winter!


Those are interesting colors in the Twinkletoes. I'd never have thought to use it on a lace pattern but it shows up great in your progress pic. I've still gotta get me some of that Opal silk!
