Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Still waiting...

...yep, still waiting to hear the results of the Simply Sock Yarn Summer of Color contest.

So I'll just post a picture of the finished mitts:
I used Plymouth Yarn, Happy Feet (fingering weight) and US 1/2.25m dpns. Pattern by Corvidae, "Basketry Mitts"

More pictures and details can be found here.

eta...I just visited Bellathena's Blog and saw it is "Colorful Monday... RED" sponsored by Jen at Unglazed and since I posted red mitts I'm going to take advantage and join in.

Glad you're joining in! And what a vivid red pair of fingerless gloves! Perfect for today(and for future wearing).

Those are pretty, Susan. You did such a nice job. Good luck with the contest results! It's hard waiting, isn't it?

JelliDonut said...

Those mitts are great! Crossing my fingers for you and your socks. Which I could do with these mitts. Just sayin'...

Susan
Welcome to the Color meme! :)
I will add you to my list.
Love these mitts!! I could use something like that for winter bird feeding.
Also you clicked correctly--the info is at the bottom of that post. But really all you need to do is post on Monday the color of the week and that list of colors is listed right on the bottom of my main page there.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Love your RED post! I do, or have done all the needlepoint, crochet, etc. except KNIT! I never learned to knit and I used to wish I could do that. Have fun with the Colors Meme!

Jen said...

Me again. I've updated and changed my blog to make the meme info more accessible to what's going on, and easier to find. :D

These red mittens are fab. I admire anyone who is an artist in yarn...so far I've only made booties and a gigantic beanie that is big enough to cover a toaster!! I'll stick to buying lovely knit goodies.:<) Happy Red Monday SusanB!!

Pom Pom said...

Oh, I LOVE the color of your mitts!

So in my sleep-deprived delirium I wrote socks, but meant mittens...I actually woke up w/that typo on my mind around 4 AM. I decided against posting at that time... ;)

Daisy said...
