My first mittens! One down, one to go. I’m using Odyssey Merino in Sea Mix, a beautiful marled yarn that really stands on its own. I stumbled upon a little yarn store in Old Town Manassas, Old Town Needlecrafts, and couldn’t resist picking up a few skeins and needles. But SERIOUSLY, this time I mean it, I’m not buying any more yarn until I use what I have! Seriously.
