Getting back on the wooly horse

I've got a little therapeutic no-brainer of a project going on right now - something to give me instant knitting pleasure after mitten tragedy - pictures in a day or two, after I dig out from under a mountain of final grading. It is a bad time of year to be a professor.

In other news, I finally got myself back to the yarn store to buy replacement alpaca for my re-knit of the Wintergreen Mittens, but I am finding that I lack the heart to restart them. Instead, I was thinking maybe I'd try my hand at either Eunny Jang's Anemoi mittens:

















Or maybe the Lilyfield Mittens:






















Which do you think would look better in a gray/cream combination? I'm leaning towards Lilyfield at the moment, but I am not sure I love the cuff - solid 1 x 1 ribbing might look better.

You should talk with Grumperina! Her blog today is EXACTLY the same. It's crazy. Maybe the two of you could knit one of each and then wear a mismatched pair from the other.

I imagine it is a sucky time to be a professor. I was talking to one of our professors and she said she was probably as much or more excited than the rest of us for break.

Why not do the Lilyfield with the stripey cuff?

tara said...
