Two wonderfully warm woollies from today’s school run

Two wonderfully warm woollies from today’s school run, the catwalk des jours. A pair of Simple Chunky Mittens by @tinydinostudios, made for the “Arctic plunge” of December 2012 (my Rav project page says it was -2C in London), from the now defunct Colinette’s Graffiti yarn. So warm, and dense as oven gloves. The blanket is a wider version of Jesse Loesberg’s #Danica scarf, which Ravelry tells me I made in October 2014, with the note “Just. What. I. Needed.” The yarn is @rowanyarns’ discontinued Colourscape Chunky in the Cherry colourway. I’m a big fan of this yarn, though for this project removed the sections that veered too far from pink/red. A lesson learned from Noro. #Entrelac is one of those #knitting techniques is totally baffling until you jump in and try it — and becomes very addictive, in an After Eight-esque, “one more square” way. I happen to to know that @ruth_crafts has an entrelac design in the works — go lurk on her feed if you’re intrigued. Happy Friday everyone — may your #knitwear be proudly #knitworn. #knitter #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #coldsnap #therewasactualsnowtoday #allgonenow #wellinsulated
