Every once in a while it happens...
Leaf Lace Scarf is a free pattern from Twisted Knitter. I'm using the "Oak Creek Canyon" colorway of The Plucky Knitter's merino fingering weight yarn. The lace pattern would show up better in a semisolid yarn, but I like the effect of a pile of autumn leaves.
Newfoundland Mitts in progress:
Both of these patterns are Ravelry discoveries, and they're easy and fun to knit.
In other news, I received a wonderful and generous parcel from Tricotine for the Knitter's Coffee Swap 3 yesterday. Details here. Thanks again, Tricotine! Mia sent me an amazing package of books and yarn this week, too. I'm still sorting through all the quilting books. Photos over the weekend, I promise.
