22 October: Another pair of mittens

For those needing a knitting fix, here's another pair of mittens recently knitted. They are made from Wensleydale wool, hand spun and the blue/brown colour hand dyed.
Since I finished these, I knitted another pair, from Blue-faced Leicester wool, in which I tried out another way of doing the thumb, that is with a gusset. (Gusset is a favourite word, and idea.) They will appear here in the fullness of time - bet you can't wait.

Wensleydale, Leicester.... you'll be knitting from Gorgonzola next Stitchwort!

Sheep, the same as cheeses, get named after the areas where they are produced - unless the cheeses are made from the milk of the sheep....

My word Stitchwort - you wouldn't find those beauties at Primark!
