This weekend I prepped a lot of chocolate chip cookie appliques for mitts and hats! I am tweaking my hat pattern, so we’ll see how it turns out in the next few days.
Some time last week or the week before, I went to a yarn shop in Los Altos to look for Cascade 220 wool for making felted gingerbreadboy cute-tility packs. Unfortch, they did not have the right color there, but of course I still walked out with some yarn!
It’s Rowan DK, and 100% wool. I’m really sensitive to animal fibers, so I hardly use wool for scrves unless it’s very soft merino. I plan to use this wool for mittens! I chose colors for cupcake fingerless mitts, and T-Bone steak Meat-tens, but then realized that all three of these colors looked yummy and pepperminty together, so I want to make a peppermint twist scarflette, too! I was also inspired to make double scoop ice cream cone mittens with the buttoned removal top for convertible fingerless mitt action. So many plans!!! So many patterns to devise!!!
Also, I sketched this (very quickly, clearly!) for Beth/JusSharDesigns, but I think I want to try to make my own version, too! I probs won’t have time, but it’d be neat to squeeze it in.
Back to work on the choco chip cookie hats! I hope to update the shop next week with hats and mittens, and I’ve also been working on re-filling scarves for ShanaLogic. Stay tuned!
