THIS BLOG IS INACTIVE

OKAY. I thought I posted about it enough when I made the switch, but two people have freaked out today thinking Tumblr had unfollowed me for them. THIS IS NOT THE CASE.

This blog, mugglibus, was previously savagedamsel. The new blog is now savagedamsel and you can find it here.

I am so excited to finally release this pattern! The Lady and Earl Grey Mitts have been in the works since December when I started working on the first sample. These versatile DK weight mitts provide just the right amount of warmth for your hands during transitional seasons. The Lady Grey mitts have an eyelet rib to add a pretty element, while the Earl Grey version uses purl bumps to keep a more masculine feel. There are three sizes offered to fit a range of hands, making these mitts perfect for gifting or keeping as a special project for you.

I worked up several samples, using a variety of yarns. My final yarn recommendations in the pattern are for Bare Naked Wools Breakfast Blend DK (the dark grey sample) and The Fiber Company Acadia (the light grey sample). Both yarns are alpaca blends with a good amount of merino content to help these yarns keep their shape.

I also knit a pair of the Lady Grey pattern in a lovely pink 100% Baby Alpaca from Island Alpaca Company, available here, and a pair of Earl Greys in Knit Picks Gloss DK. That’s four samples, and I’m still not tired of these mitts yet!

My favorite detail of these mitts is the thumb. The thumb gusset is worked up in reverse stockinette with one panel of ribbing traveling up the sides of the thumb. The eyelets on the Lady Grey mitts are beautiful touch and the purl bumps of the Earl Grey version almost look like studs raising up from the rib panel.

These mitts are a very quick knit with an easy to memorize stitch pattern. I included both charted and written directions so you can choose whichever you are most comfortable with. Pick out your favorite DK weight yarn and start working on this perfect project to keep the chill of spring morning air away from your hands!

Vimes wakes up in the shadow of a barricade and immediately assumes the worst. But then it turns out this Enjolras lad’s got all the good parts of Ned Coates and Reg Shoe with very little of the bad, and his second-in-command reminds him a little of Dr. Lawn, and it’s funny, but he gets the feeling this revolution might work out after all.

Javert, meanwhile, finds himself drawn quite against his will into a discussion of the finer points of the law with one Captain Ironfoundersson…

(You can blame this thread for the nonsense above! Don’t ask me how the timeline works, it went all wibbly-wobbly for comedic purposes, okay. ALSO LOOK, A CROSSOVER THAT DOESN’T END IN TEARS!)

Today is a day of The Best AUs.

Celestarium is a knitted shawl written by Audry Nicklin that is an accurate representation of the night sky from the North Pole.  Knitted in the round, with eyelets and beads used to represent the stars.
While I don’t think I’ll add the beads, I am very tempted to make this.
