no name

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.

right cuff

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.

About fridica

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
