Yarnalong: Snawpaws and River Road

How delicious is that Little Dipper Yarns?

Today I’m going to hand in a 5,000 words essay and then life will go back to normal – yeah, right. 

Knitting: Snawpaws by Kate Davies in Little Dipper Yarns and Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd’s Wool Fine

A while ago, I told my sister I would knit her some colourwork mitts – when I’d finished my cardigan. Then I got distracted by my Nut Hap, so these are now well overdue. I wouldn’t feel that bad about it, except it dropped to below zero (Celsius) where she lives last week!

As per usual, I didn’t get Kate Davies’ gauge (seriously, how loosely does that woman knit?), so I’ve had to make a few alterations. Moved up a needle size and added in an extra snowflake in the pattern. I’m going to be adding a flap too, so these can also be worn as mittens.

Reading: River Road by Carol Goodman

I’d read another of Goodman’s books before, so I thought I’d try another. It’s alright, nothing too challenging and enough of a mystery to keep things interesting.

See what everyone else is knitting and reading over on the original Yarnalong.
