There's the first one. I am not (usually) a pink person, but since a) I got given this yarn by my mom, b) it's alpaca and c) did I mention it was free?, I'm going to roll with it.
Actually, it looks fairly nice on:
Or maybe not. I mean, these mitts are a homage to knits worn by a dwarf on a very dangerous journey who was wearing everything he owned (and some wicked cool Pippi Longstocking braids, too). Would Bofur have quibbled over the seam showing pink? No, I think he would not!
Yes, that is a sign it is far, far too late at night and I am exhausted beyond thought. I just wanted to put some pictures up and reassure you that yes, I am alive and yes, I am knitting.
Now, good night.
