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.

Finished Ribbed Mitts

 Ribbed Mitts...
(last rose of the year, our weather has been below freezing at night)

There was a little pooling of the purple on the second mitt.
I don't know why. Maybe I was off by a round or two and the extra stitches for the thumb gusset changed the stitch count enough to cause the pooling. But for the most part they match pretty darn good. So I'm happy with them.

I think I'll make them again and this time I'll do a garter stitch ridge at the top. (just for something different)

I did notice your roses still blooming...they sure made for a pretty posey pose with your GORGEOUS Mitts. Neat they way the stripped!
