As you can see, I continue to work on my fingerless mitts. The brown yarn is a little tricky to work with because it’s so stiff but the orange baby alpaca is so wonderful and soft. I’m getting close the finishing the first mitt. So far I’m quite happy with it… Hubby might not get them after all. Hopefully by next week I’ll be almost finished the pair. If you are wondering, I’m using the Berry Hill Fingerless Mitts pattern from Ravelry.
For my book selection this week I’m reading a few cook books. I received Forgotten Skills of Cooking for the feast of St. Nicholas and I borrowed Meat: A Kitchen Education from the library (it has a long-braise rabbit stew recipe that I’ll be trying out tomorrow). It’s no secret that I really enjoy reading cook books 🙂
