Well, I've now started the mittens to match my Tantallon Hat.
I'm using the Tantallon Fair Isle design but following the pattern for the Ursula mittens I made last winter.
I'm modifying the pattern to include a lined cuff - for extra warmth, and I'm making them slightly longer than the Ursula mittens. I'll also add an i-cord edging to the cuffs, to match the hat.
I'm not sure my bits and pieces of pink 4 ply will last so I'm knitting them simultaneously to keep track of each colour.
The weather has turned rather nasty now. Summer is definitely over. Time for some comfort food, so I made a carrot cake using this recipe.
Very moist and yummy. Knitting, carrot cake, a hot mug of tea - sounds perfect to me.
