The Fair Isle Bug has bit!

Once again, the fair isle bug has bit!

For some reason, as I closed in on the 'applied I-cord' of the German Shawl ... I was hopelessly dreaming of colorwork. I needed a fix - and fast!

That shawl was no sooner off the needles when I cast on for the Amaryllis Mittens!

Mittens are a relatively quick 'fix' ... and these babies had been marinating in my stash since Mary Ann Stephens published the design.

AAhhhh .... I am going to LOVE these!

Ooh, I am so ticked to have found your site! I'm in the middle of some serious knitting classes that I'm enjoying so very much! And, dogs? Well, yes!!
