A small change in my search terms and a comparison chart was swiftly found – at Angel Yarns, of course!

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.

I wish I had a yarn suitable for the Fire theme. Dragon scale mitts in a fiery colour would be pretty wonderful. But I don’t have anything suitable at present and I can’t buy anything for ages.

Unless…

Merino and Mohair

I spin this? It would make gorgeous mitts but I don’t think I am clever enough yet to spin a yarn just the weight I need for a given project.

Startitis. I know. *sigh* But I am “off” my socks and big knitting hurts just now, so I want something new and interesting that I can knit in my lap and christen some of my new DPNs. You know – something small and contained that will simply fly off the needles in a couple of sessions.

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

I’ll let you know.

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
