After binding off another Rose Red yesterday (my third completed, but my fourth in total – I had to rip the first one completely because of a terrible bind-off job, it was a tragedy indeed), I immediately cast on for my next Ysolda project: Veyla. They are wonderful vintage-looking mittens with a lacey cuff and several understated details on the mitt that you don’t notice immediately, only to joyfully discover them as you carefully examine the mitts.
I decided to do both cuffs first and block the lace before proceeding. This is the right one, not yet blocked.
I am doing them in a yarn that I bought exclusively for its colour. I do not enjoy working with it and it is not of any particular quality, but I just cannot cannot stop adoring this mustardy yellow colour. And it goes perfectly with the elm leaf pattern of the lace.
Still no inspiration for the name.
