FO Friday 30.11.18

They’re finally finished! I have a matching pair of Lingonberry Frostvirka mittens!!

Man am I happy to get these off the hook, they might be the most stressful project I’ve ever made. Crochet is meant to be the opposite of stressful!

The offending thumbs

But they’re done now and they do look pretty, so it’s still a win.

I’m looking forward to handing them over to their new owner. She asked for mittens, but didn’t specify colour or style, and I’ve kept them secret (she doesn’t read my blog) so they’re still going to be a surprise. I love giving surprises!

If anyone’s interested, I made these using Women’s Institute Soft & Silky in Amethyst and Cream. A gorgeous colour combo if I do say so myself.

Now, on to the next Christmas present!

There’s no such thing as too much yarn

Did I mention it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago? Honestly, April has whizzed past so quickly it feels like it was only yesterday.

Another present I got from my parents was a big box of yarn!

30 skeins to be exact; one for every year. There’s all sorts in there so I thought I’d have a proper look and share what I got.

There are some classics like a Caron Cake (have these shrunk??) Sugar n Cream, and some Women’s Institute in various colours.

Some gorgeously squishy stuff

Fun colourways

And my absolute favourite, the unicorn pack

It’s sparkly! I’m already digging around Ravelry trying to find the perfect project for it. Sparkly unicorn jumper anyone?

I really, definitely, absolutely¬†must¬†sort out my yarn stash now. Throwing it in all higgledy piggledy is just not working when I have so much. So that’ll be my exciting weekend!

Any suggestions for a pattern to use my unicorn yarn pack on? Let me know in the comments!
