You know the good weather has arrived when I am knitting by the fire.
This is Serpentine Mitts, which I have had in my pattern selections for ages. Kathy over at WIP sent me this delicious yarn last year. It is Piedmont Yarn’s Hand Dyed Yarn 100% superwash wool, colour way (I think) Oakland Wildsocks. It is the perfect shade of green for me, and this winter I realized I needed some new, stylish fingerless mitts. Viola! First one was finished last night at the fire, and second one is already a few inches in to the cuff.
The night was beautiful, and we enjoyed our backyard fire very much. Hopefully we get a few in before any fire ban, which I think will be early this summer as we have not had as much precipitation as usual and the weeks ahead look pretty dry and warm.
