My most recent finished project!

Revenge of the Mummies(Ravelry link) DSCN3471

Cherry Tree Hill DK in Caramel Corn. This was a special at The Loopy Ewe and I wish I had gotten some more =/

In other news I have signed up for the third round of the No-More-Hum-Drum-Mittens Swap 3 and have been busily searching for a pattern to make my partner. I think I have settled on Anemoi Mittens (Ravelry link) in a variegated green and gray for the contrast color. I'm going to try to go for a color theme for my partner this go-round so we're going to have to find as many green knitting related items we can! I've already got an idea for a bag and stitch markers. I wonder what else I can come up with before November!
