I have this little voice in the back of my head that says I should attempt to maintain some sort of semblance of self effacing modesty. That I should not let on about how tickled pink I am about this whole thing.
But you know what? That little voice is absolutely drowned out by the ever so much louder voice saying “Holy crap look what I made. Isn’t it fabulous? Don’t you just love it to bits?!?”
And today? Well today the louder voice is winning. Because this really is rather delightful.
It’s off with testers now (some day we’re going to talk about how much I love the part of the process where I get to watch other people make the thing that existed first only in my head, because it really is kind of trippy). And I’ll be venturing out to take proper photos of it here shortly (I like to have the mitts and the hat get their photos at the same time so I don’t have to worry about the light being different on different days). And then the pattern should be out in May (the magic linky thing at the bottom of this post will let you sign up to hear when it’s out if you want a heads up).
If you want to start tracking down yarn, I used a skein of Malabrigo’s Rios in Natural (that’s the white bit), and a skein of Freia’s Sport Gradient in Flare, and I had plenty of yarn to do the hat and mitts from one skein of each (standard disclaimer about how if you decide to make your mitts elbow length you may have a different experience, but I have a big head and big hands, and I was fine).
