4ply it is, then.

I’m going for these Dragon Scale mitts
. I’ll maybe use my green bamboo mix yarn for them, or perhaps the grey BFL commercial spun yarn from my stash, or maybe even some of my handpsun BFL as I have way too much for the cascading leaves shawl. It is a bit on the fine side for 4ply but not so much that I couldn’t compensate.

So, is it a Gretel or is it the mitts?

I’ll let you know.

I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
