Rovaniemi and Puritans

I love these half-mitts. The technique is sublime, the working of it lovely. If you despise Intarsia and don't have the coordination for handling two colors at once ... this is still a viable technique. Only one color is in the hand at a time, and the mitts are worked in the round. They're lovely. I'm not sure how I will keep from wearing them until after the State Fair (or if the fair accepts half mitts in the mitten category), but I will try.

Now, on to the next thing. Beth's Endpaper Mitts. And back to the Swallowtail Shawl. And figuring out what to knit in a dimly-lighted room full of Super Bowl watchers. And what to bring along as a food offering.

Last month, I read The Bruised Reed by Richard Sibbes. This month the book is The Mystery of Providence by John Flavel. It's not online, as last month's book was, but Monergism has online several books by the same author. Charity is what sticks in my mind from Sibbes. I look forward to learning more about Providence this month.

Those are nice mitts. I am a despiser of intarsia...because I can't do it. I'm always happy to hear that something isn't intarsia.
