Opps I did it again

I strayed from the pledge not to start anything new...instead I took a break from the sweater and clipped these out....Another pair of Serpentine Mitts.
These are such a fast knit. Might have to do a pair for me.

Went to the Bookstore last night - had no intention of buying anything - went with REI Girl. But this just jumped into my arms....Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting....Oh it's beautiful. AFTER the sweater and AFTER the shawl - then a Fair Isle Project.

Maybe something like this....
This is from this site Beautiful things - but in Swedish. I just like the colorway of may use the new book to design my own!

I also started a quick hat for REI girl out of the left over Noro from my bag - it matches her jacket perfectly so I just had to do it...duh.

I have an empty house today so will knit and stay warm by the fire!!

Faire Isle gets to be more fun when you get so you can read the knitting and not have to live with the paper pattern. Joy and success to you!

And the serpentine mitts rock!

There´s nothing better than sitting by the fire and knit :) Nice mitts!

I've been straying also. But I did re-purpose a couple of things started from months or years ago. And I did break down and bought some yarn when I said I wouldn't.

I've got a problem. Now I see it might be contagious.

Faire Isle--if you cast and pick, you will find it fun and almost addictive. The mitts are great. Have missed you this last week. Hope you are just busy.
