I've had a bit of a lull on the knitting front recently, as the mojo fell by the wayside and I've been a tadge slow in picking the sticks back up. I don't know why this happened, probably because there's been so much going on at work and at home that I haven't had time to sit down and have some quiet knitting time (i.e. a couple of hours rather than a couple of minutes).
So to ease me back into things, I've knitted Monkeychild a pair mittens out of some multi-coloured Noro Furin that I had in the stash. These were an easy and quick knit, especially as I used an aran weight yarn. I love the purple, turquoise and pink shades in this yarn, but I did skip the yukky WTF colour that Noro usually have and used two balls instead of one to match up the colours on each mitten.
Well, they've had a thumbs up from their recipient so much so that she's asked me to knit her another pair. A winning result both for her and me as I now know what my next project will be!
BTW - I'm linking this post into Lakota's Ta Dah Tuesday.
P.S. Have just found out that the new series of The Great British Bake Off is starting tonight - YAY!!!!!
