Fall is pushing its way into the landscape with its chilly winds and heavy rain these days, so I finally pulled out all my hats and gloves the other day, making the change of season official. I started wearing my Kerkstraat mittens again and realized just how much I really like those mittens. I decided to make another pair and ordered another skein of the Tosh Merino Light in the warm red colorway, "Vermilion":
Knitting the mittens again gives me a chance to go through the pattern once more to make sure everything is still the way I want it to be. I'm so excited to knit myself another pair, and especially about yet again working with this beautiful yarn. Although it's a one-ply yarn, it's very hardwearing and my old Kerkstraat mittens still look as good as new. Plus, they're super soft, and the color is so vivid.
I have a lot on my plate right now what with studying and everything, but fortunately I still have room for some knitting every once in a while. I will keep you updated on this second pair of my Kerkstraat mittens. Take care!
