cold weather is here

It is cold here -- I heard someone mutter about possible snow this week! -- and it is colder up north. So these things are boxed up and will head off to Nest: Maine tomorrow morning:

Left to right: Peace Fleece mittens in Siberian Midnight (discontinued) and Moscow Magic; double-stranded mittens using Lion Brand Fisherman's wool and Paton's Classic; small red mittens made with Briggs & Little wool; socks using one strand Lion Brand Fisherman's wool, 1 strand variegated aqua Kroy sock yarn; striped hat from miscellaneous scraps (100% wool); red waffle hat from Lamb's Pride worsted (85% wool, 15% mohair), possibly color Medieval Red; purple wool blend hat made from anonymous (meaning I don't have the ball band) yarn obtained from Elann quite some time ago.


  1. They look lovely they'll keep someone nice and warm.

  3. How was your experience with the socks that you made from a double strand of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool and Paton's Kroy sock yarn? Did you hand wash them? Did wear cause the socks to felt? Did hand washing cause the socks to felt? Did they stand up well to wear?
