Nora Jumps On The Band Wagon and The Mitten 16 Project Is Complete

Having seen many posts where gals are posing without makeup to indicate how secure they feel with their true selves, Nora decides to jump on the band wagon and posts a photo of herself with NO grooming whatsoever today!


The Mitten16 Project Is Complete
I do like working with Nature Spun yarn. It is hearty enough to make it ideal for stranded knitting but still softer to the touch than other similar yarns. It was hard at first to get back to stranded knitting after more than a year and the first mitten was an exercise in frustration. My technique improved greatly with the second mitten and I am ready now for my Fair Isle class at the end of the month.
Pattern: Mitten 16
Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport
Colours: 601 (pepper); 730 (natural); 135 (hurricane seas)
