It’s taken me a couple days to make Blogger accept my photos… Lookie what arrived in my mailbox a couple days ago!!!
The mittens, front and center, first and foremost, are awesome. They’re knit from the White Witch Mitts pattern, from Knitting Daily (a pattern that made it into my Ravelry queue, but not my needles…) and they’re fantastically soft and warm. A good thing since the temperature had “warmed up” to 26 F by the time I opened the box. I love the colors, and they fit perfectly.
Carolyn also included a gorgeous skein of Dream in Color’s “Classy,” a worsted weight yarn, and the “Bird in Hand” mitten pattern. I can hardly wait to cast on!
The last little surprise (which, sadly, has been mostly consumed by now) was a little box of the most delectable handmade chocolates, which are locally made in Carolyn’s area. Don’t you just love the little “Owner’s Manual?”
