I had focus this morning. Make coffee and finish these mittens (one right, one left, by the way). Simple mittens made from 100% Peruvian wool in a beautiful shade of aquamarine. I love these mittens but as I was knitting them, I couldn't get it out of my head how good they would look with a little bit of natural white somewhere on the mitten. But where? This is the part where the spontaneous needle felting occurred. ( Spontaneous needle felting? Did I really write that? Yep. I need to get out more.) I embellished each mitten with a little swirl and a couple of spots of green, just because I also love blue and green together. They should be in the shop soon.
I came back from yesterday's walk with a little treasure too. Some acorn caps, one of which I used to make this little ornament which will be included with a pair of mittens that just sold. Mike gave me a look like he thinks I'm insane when I asked him to drill holes in the acorn cap but I don't think the requested surprised him that much.
