Episode 5: Citius, Altius Fortius

Hello from an almost spring-like Cheshire Plain! Today I talk about the Ravelympics and the Knitting Olympics, review my first full mitten pattern and squee over 9 foot of striped novelty yarn:

On the Hooks and Needles: For the Ravleympics I've been working on the Chocolate Stripe tunic/dress from Knitting Noro by Jane Ellison...

... and my Poshman Mittens, David Schulz's Northman Mittens in two colours of Posh Yarn Emily.

I've also been producing 12x12 inch squares for the fifth round of NYOBE (Not Your Ordinary Block Exchange), but I have no photos yet as most aren't finished, and produced these two squares for a Schuyler Blanket in memory of Juan.

Review: Northman Mittens by David Schulz of Southern Cross Fibre

Something I really like: Independent hand-dyd yarns. What makes your heart sing? Let me know!

Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album TrĂ¥d, available from Magnatune.
