Hello again!

I know. It's been a while.
But life just...takes you away sometimes, doesn't it?

But I am back to talk about a couple of new patterns.

Moreish Mitts
(Yarn: Fyberspates Scrumptious high-twist DK (yellow); Rowan Pure Wool DK (pink); Sirdar Supersoft Aran (blue and grey))
I released this pattern a few weeks ago, and it is perfect for the weather. The pattern is written so that you can use any weight yarn from DK up to bulky, and for any hand size. I named them Moreish because I seriously couldn't stop knitting them, as you can see from the pictures. I think I knit all three pairs in something like a couple of weeks.
These are awesomely simple to knit: the main part is knit in one piece and grafted; the thumb is worked as you go in short rows; the edges are picked up for the cuffs. Weave in the ends, and you're done!

They are available as a download over at Ravelry, of course, and I'll add them to the website soon.
They're so easy! And they look great. I am still in love with garter stitch.

Also! I have yet more exciting news. Fyberspates Scrumptious Volume 3 is coming out and yours truly was absolutely thrilled to have a chance to contribute to it. I have a pullover pattern in it and will introduce it during the blog tour next week. Keep an eye on this space!
