If you don't read Kate's blog, you should.
The sheep picture she published few weeks ago, gave me the inspiration to make the blog header illustration with the sheep.
Since this month is all about 100 % wool I wanted to make something very woolly, all wool, no man made stuff, pure sheep's clothing.I am glad that there still are available many good all wool yarns, yarns that are not over processed and bear the sheep's label in them. When I find a tiny bit of hay in the fiber, it makes me very happy because that is the sheep's foot print in there, the very proof that reads sheep.
Transition from the baby hat to a new project was once again bit of frustrating. Many, many ripped items in between before I was able to settle in comfortably with the new project.
I have gathered inspiration to these mittens from many sources and I will tell you more about them later. I just love this feeling of being in the middle of a project, when you are mostly satisfied with the design details but when there are just few little things to add and you feel confident that it will all come together in the end.
