This morning I woke up with the sole purpose of completing the mittens before taking off on tonight’s plane. All was going smoothly until I discovered that the coffee machine had broken down. I decided to bring my knitting around the corner to a local coffee shop only to find that it had re-located so I had no choice but to quickly purchase a cafetiere (from the cookery shop sporting my photograph in the window) in order to satisfy my caffeine cravings. The coffee was delicious and within forty minutes my beautiful mittens were finished and are now ready to fly home with me.
The wool that I used was a soft aran that was a delight to work with. I just love the simple cable pattern. It feels so homely and warm.
