Fleckles Round 2

I love how these colors work together - A Hundred Ravens Iachos in the Nimue and Catherine of Aragon colorways.

Pattern is almost done - ready for a late August/early September release.

I recently met with Kate at A Hundred Ravens Yarn and she asked me to design a pair of fingerless mitts using her Iachos yarn.  She picked out two colorways - Cherrywood and That Infernal Machine.  She wanted something that we could put in a kit and that would highlight her variegated yarn (in this case That Infernal Machine).

I had shown her a swatch using two yarns I had in my stash and she gave me the okay to start the project.

Here are the skeins in all their glory:

So lovely and so fun to knit with - in fact this pattern was a bit of potato chip knitting - I just had to keep going and see what color worked in next.

Here are the mitts - the pattern isn't final yet but Kate gave me the okay to share them.

I am so in love with this pattern - now I'll be sizing it up...and I get to try a different color combination...Nimue and Catherine of Aragon.  I can't wait - I'm off to wind yarn!
