Pretty Iro 81

Martha at RiverWools got in some new colors of Noro Iro, one of which just resonated with my inner soul - #81. I immediately made a pair of easy-peasy fingerless mitts and just as immediately gave them away to my friend Cheri, who always makes me the recipient of the Spring Hospice daffodil bouquet deliveries (and sends Harry and David when I have appendectomies..)

And then I made a second pair, doing the ribbing with a lovely bulky lilac wool yarn, Cascade 110. While I'm not so sure that mitts really do justice to the amazing colors in this colorway, I'm pleased with them. (Besides, I have three more skeins to work out the justice....)

Underneath these mitts, you might recognize the out-of-print, oft-sought, now-way-too-pricey Principles of Knitting by June Hemmons Hiatt.

That's a story for another day....
