I Love to Knit.

I spent a delightful day yesterday, knitting a top down thrummed mitten.  Imagine being in a room with a bunch of people that you like, with nothing to do but knit.  Heaven.  This is a thrummed mitten.  I'm using a yarn called Pur by Schoppel Wolle, that's not spun, and looks like a velvety ribbon.  The yarn seemed to bloom as I knit it.  I'm using a size 6 needle for worsted weight wool, as I knit rather loose.  The thrums are Blackberry Ridge Roving.  The thrums look like happy little hearts. This is going to feel like sticking my hands in a fluffy wooly cloud.
