See, now isn’t that more interesting :-D

I am about two inches past the afterthought thumb stitches, with about three inches to go before the shaping starts. Somehow colourwork always seems to rocket along.

The yarn, by the way, is Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift. The same as in Eunny’s Autumn Rose. I picked it up for a song (not on sale, this yarn is cheap!) at Iknit and will definitely be using more of it. A bit scratchy maybe, but fine for outer wear. If you want to get yourself a head start on the pattern, I expect we’ll need two balls of each colour.

ETA for Lin: The shades are ‘coffee’ #880 and ’sky’ #130.

    I like those colours together and mitts make a nice change from socks without the tedious fingers of gloves.
