Today I am not drinking my usual coffee, but a tisane. (I've already had 3 cups of coffee!) It is a mixture of Camomile, Orange leaves and vanilla. Promoted as 'Anti-Stress'. I drink so much if this one ('cos it tastes lovely) I am permanently stress-less!
You can also see the lone child's size fingerless mitten next to it. I am working on this pattern, but I'm not happy with the thumb yet.
I'm also making a sleeveless cardigan for Max in a really unusual pattern. It's coming out a bit small, so I'm hoping it'll block to size! I'm not pulling it all back if it doesn't! The colours are really good together and this is a new stitch pattern on me. I tried it in the gloves, but it wouldn't work with the thumb. I'm going to try and design a pattern where the thumb is knitted on afterwards and see if that works. The stranding of the yarns behind the work makes for a really warm fabric, ideal for gloves.
