I'm not sure how I feel about these mitts......
They are quite "earthy".......aren't they???
Originally, the first mitt had the pink candy ribbon. I felt it was very juvenile-looking and decided to change it.
I was at Jo'Ann's buying the suede ribbon when an 8-year old girl started asking me about the mitt and told me how pretty she thought it was. That confirmed my thoughts. This little girl was so sweet that if they had been a smaller size, I would have given the mitts to her. She told me she was taking ice skating lessons.
She was extremely patient while her grandma and I had this long conversation about crafts.
I'm a little taken lately with trying out new cheeses in moderation. Bonne Bouche won the 2010 best aged goat cheese in America award. I'm proud that it is made here in Vermont. The grey that you see is actually mold that happens in the aging process.
I was at the health food store and looking for a good cracker to go with the cheese. The name on these caught my eye. Seaweed!!!! Right up my alley with my blog name and my roots that go back to the Coast of Maine.
I was not disappointed! Delicious!!!
Oops! forgot that this is really a knitting blog. I started a new hat today. Pictures coming mid-week. It's a quick knit using alpaca yarn and I am loving it.
BTW...the mitts means I have another UFO finished. The cooler weather was the incentive I needed.
