Wool Britannia

I may have been a bit premature in proclaiming the arrival of Spring, it is freezing again. Time to wrap up warm and keep the cups of tea coming.

One snow day mitten

While hiding inside away from the cold, I’ve finally created something useful out of the lovely green wool that I bought months ago. I’m knitting more snow day mittens. I’ve just finished my first one.

The mitten actually fits the hand that it is destined to keep warm. This is normally where my knitting falls down, so I’m making progress. Now I just need to knit mitten number two, I don’t seem to be as fast as many knitting bloggers, but I’ll do my best.

The Aran wool, is from Knitwits in Penzance. It’s British, ┬áso it must be good for my carbon footprint with it’s minimal wool miles.
