It takes time to knit a beautiful pair of mittens.
It takes time to deal with life when it comes at you from all sides and Suzy's had more than her fair share lately.
It takes time to get two people together when the weather is cooperative, and. lately, the weather has been far from cooperative.
But, when things work like a waterclock, and everything falls into place, we get to show off how we spent our time.
Suzy and I have new mittens!
It was a cold and sunny day, so we decided to go out and hug a tree. We didnt care if the tree had a fungus (Smith's is turning all master gardener on us and told us it wasn't moss). The color was a spectacular backdrop for our lovely Clepsydra Mittens so we hugged away.
The yarn is Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Candied Yams and Steel Cut Oats, with black for the cuffs. We both agreed it was fun to knit the pattern and the yarn, as the design flowed in a peaceful and easy way.
We knit our mittens independently, as there wasn't much time to get together. However, this pattern gave us hours of good entertainment and, even when we weren't knitting, we were talking about it.
We are both very happy with our lovely, warm and timeless mittens.
(The alpaca yarn we can live without.)
Kirsten has an eBook with both the Clepsydra mitten and the hat. The fun is not to be missed.
The time to knit mittens is over, thus ends Mitten Madness.
