And I’ve never blogged before, so I hope y’all will bear with me! :) I got the yarn for my Pirate Mittens today – Knitpicks Telemark in Columbine (purple – for the background) and Snow Leopard (pale grey – for the skully bits). Before I start the mittens, though, I’ll probably finish my current project: the Nina Shawl from Mason-Dixon Knitting. The checkerboard part of Nina is the first colorwork I’ve ever done, so I hope the Pirate Mittens won’t be too challenging for me – but I’m looking forward to trying them!
