Last week I received the latest shipment from the BMFA Rockin’ Sock Club! The March 2012 yarn is to DIE for. Can’t share photos yet, of course, but I will soon! I’ve decided to make the sock pattern this month — it’s perfect for the yarn.
I also cast on for my very own Catkin! I’ve loved this pattern for quite some time, and I think it will be stunning in Mad Tosh Light in “French Grey” and “Byzantine.”
I hope everyone in the knitting world took time to cast on yesterday for Louise Zass-Bangham‘s new design, The Emperor’s New Mitts. I did, and I don’t regret it one little bit! I elected to use the recommended yarn, Rumplestiltskin (100% pure spun gold), Unicorn (100% rainbow), and Jason (golden fun fur). Of course it took extra care and time to place the 3000 gold beads, but I think you would agree that the results are worth it!
Here is Julian modelling my new mitts — very pretty, no?
