FO Friday......Linden Mitts and Happy Mail.

 

One FO today and that is my Linden Mitts by Jane Richmond, they don't take long to knit and they only use one 50g ball of 4ply yarn!!!!

I used Knit Picks Felici in Building Blocks, I even managed to get the stripes on the second mitt more or less the same as the first one, which made me happy. I know it wouldn't bother some of you but I like things to match and would of really bugged me if they hadn't.

I'm linking to FO Friday over on Tami's blog.

I would like to say a big thank you to Marianne from Ladybird Diaries for my happy mail, this week. It was for a brooch swap organised by the lovely Jo of Three Stories High.

Marianne, made me this beautiful flower brooch in a gorgeous sparkly pink yarn as well as sending me some little extras. The chocolates have gone but were delicious and the lace and buttons will be used in future projects. Thank you so much Marianne and to Jo who organised it.

Have a great weekend.

Yay for matching stripes!! It would have bugged me too. I am known for splicing yarn when I can't get the stripes to match.

Hello lovely Deb, life is a funny old thing. My Mum wanted some mittens as she said that she had been feeling the cold and I couldn't find a pattern today to knit up a pair for her. I link into your fabulous blog and wow there are are, just the ones I have been looking for! Wonderful, thank you Deb. Hope you had a great Mother's Day, sorry I have been missing you, too much going on in my life unfortunately but it is so lovely to read your blog today. Sending you loves and hugs
