Look at the beautiful card I got in the mail today:


It’s from Elizabeth, who painted it herself. What a wonderful added bonus of blogging! Thanks, Elizabeth, it’s taking pride of place on the mantle.

Now that I’m freed from Christmas stocking Purgatory, I’m finally able to start something new! Though it will admittedly be another repeated pattern… here are the cuffs for another pair of thrummed mittens, this time for my sister.


The cuff on the top is folded in half as it will be on the mitten; I’ll pick up stitches around the top for the hand, so the cuffs will be double-thickness.

Now, back to house-cleaning!

I’m glad you are enjoying it. Now I’m all embarassed. Boy you knit like the wind!

What yarn is it? It looks like Shetland Chunky, I made my mom’s scarf and a hat for her also and they look a lot like your cuffs.

Lovely card and WOW I just saw the Celtic Cid Cardi: really heirloomy. The buttons are the crowning touch. xoxoox Kay
