* Greenland Mitts *
I had still some wool left from this seagreen Shetland yarn (one of my fave colours), so another pair of cuffs were knitted and felted. This yarn can good use a 60°C in the machine. The beads that make the * snowflakes *** are slightly opalizing, so give a nice extra frosty effect. I just love those small cuffs which can be used as bracelets too. They are warm enough for me and comfortable are they....just perfect! It is just weather to work inside. Still very wet and foggy; you can't see a thing outside. It gives a little depressing effect, but here in the land between two oceans you always have to reckon with bad weather! +4°C makes you shiver and feel like -14°C ... I uploaded some fogpix to my Google Earth account though, as I think they give a special mood. You can look at www.panoramio.com/user/2618108. Enjoy!!
