WIP Wednesday – Shrooms

21086758798_9558bcca67_o 21274663055_716ee5645f_oI can’t believe that Wednesday has rolled around again so soon! It seems like this year is just flying by.  We started back into our homeschooling routine last week and have been  getting adjusted to our Autumn schedule.  What better way to kick of September, than knitting some fun mittens with mushrooms?

This is another one of Natalia Moreva’s amazing mitten patterns called “Shrooms.”  I have chosen six different colors of merino and merino/cashmere for these and am very happy with how they are knitting up.  I love the cheery little mushrooms and the constant variety of color. While it may be a little slower knitting with this many colors, I find the effect quite striking, and it makes me wonder why I don’t play with a larger number of colors like this more often.

We’ll, the kiddos and I are off on our bikes to the beach for the remainder of the afternoon.  I hope that you find a bit of time for something crafty today and stay tuned to my blog for some yummy new yarns, including a fun combo spin!

Happy crafting!
