IWTMT: Sweet Fern Mitts

It was 34 degrees out when I woke up this morning. 34 degrees!!! Two years ago tomorrow I was outside getting married in a short-sleeved sweater. On Friday it ... snowed. Not here, but on the mountain. That means it's coming. Yuck (and other words that rhyme with yuck.)

I was walking today with my Amanda Hat and my Amazing Striped Scarf on but I was still shoving my hands in my pockets because they were freezing. Yes, I'm one of those cold-handed females.

When I went to Green Mountain Spinnery, I picked up 2 skeins of Wonderfully Wooly, one in yellow and one in green. The plan was that I'd make mitts from one and a hat from the other.

I do plan on making the Sweet Fern Mitts (Rav) from Clara Parkes' The Knitter's Book of Wool. That's what I bought Wonderfully Wooly for. Do you think I should make them green or yellow? I'm leaning toward green right now.

If you can't see the Ravelry link, or you'd like to see a nice blog post with the Sweet Fern Mitts, please check out the Easter Report at The Knit Knack's blog. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go drool over her Crazy Zauberball in that post.

(P.S. - Just a reminder! When I post to blogs like this, the nice people there usually don't have a clue. I like to spread the blog love! I'll tell you if I'm pimping a blog, promise.)
